Nicotine - Gregor Hens

Staff Pick

Let me state upfront that this is not a guide for tackling nicotine addiction. Or maybe it is, but if so, it’s more about suggesting processes of coping. For Gregor Hens, that process is putting pen to paper: to acknowledge all the sensual pleasures that smoking and the experiences that surround it have afforded him over the years and, in a sense, to relive those pleasures from writing's safe distance. It’s subtle and majestic at once, a beautiful little book that should appeal to current smokers, former smokers, and non-smokers alike.
