“Only Oblivion is a compelling account of a woman’s relationship with an alcoholic and drug-addicted man. I found this to be a powerfully written book that shows how easy it is to get sucked into believing a partner’s deceptions and false promises and to become accepting of violent and belittling behaviour. An enlightening read, this true story outlines how the determined addict can try detox, dry houses, Tibetan Buddhism, AA and cold turkey but still find that there is no easy solution to this debilitating illness. No punches are pulled and this is not a comfortable read, but I believe it is an essential one for anyone facing similar circumstances or wishing to find out what makes someone to stay with a domineering and abusive partner, and what they must do to avoid enabling behaviour and becoming themselves addicted to the role of saviour. I found it eye-opening and strongly emotional while being superbly written.” Barbara Scott Emmett, author.
