S Street Rising
Crack, Murder, and Redemption in D.CBook - 2014
"During the height of the crack epidemic that decimated the streets of D.C., Ruben Castaneda covered the crime beat for the Washington Post. The first in his family to graduate from college, he had landed a job at one of the country's premier newspapers. But his apparent success masked a devastating secret: he was a crack addict. Even as he covered the drug-fueled violence that was destroying the city, he was prowling S Street, a 24/7 open-air crack market, during his off hours, looking for his next fix. S Street Rising is more than a memoir; it's a portrait of a city in crisis"-- Provided by publisher.
