    ePUB Donald Goines ´ Dopefiend eBook ¸ ´ dopefiend mobile, Dopefiend PDFDonald Goines first saw the devil on the streets of Detroit back in the 1950's and wound up with a monkey on his back the size of Mighty Joe Young eventually going belly up in the gutter at age 37 over a dope deal gone way south With a stint at Jackson State Penitentiary wedged in there somewhere as well Before he laid down for that final dirt nap however he was churning out grim stuff like Dopefiend in between nods most of which is so seedy you'll be tempted to start shooting up scratching yourself and waking up
