Just a few years ago, the opioid crisis could be referred to as a "silent epidemic," but it is no longer possible to argue that the scourge of opiate addiction can be overlooked. This is in large part thanks to the extraordinary writings featured in this volume of frontline reportage, which includes New Yorker's Margaret Talbot ("The Addicts Next Door"), the Washington Post's Eli Saslow ("How's Amanda?"), Mother Jones's Alison Lurie ("Finding a Fix"), a three-part series by the Roanoke Times's Beth Macy, and "Delivered Like Pizza," an excerpt from Sam Quinones's Dreamland.
