"For readers of Beautiful Boy, Drinking- A Love Story, and Dry comes a brave shared memoir, told in alternating chapters, of love, addiction, devotion, and redemption. When Stanford-educated New York Times journalist Susan Stellin met the edgy and charming Scottish portrait photographer Graham MacIndoe, they fell hard and fast. But after their romantic first few months together, Graham's addiction to heroin and crack slowly eroded their relationship. In Chancers, they tell their story, from Graham's arrest for drug possession, his stint at Riker's Island, and his looming threat of deportation to Susan's struggles, first to distance herself, then to follow her instincts to help him."
