Sykes’ Blackout-Drunk Memoir Kicks Off Post-Frey Rehab-Lit Frenzy: Moyers, Dukakis, David Carr Dredge Up Grotty Days and Nights; Reconciling Conflict of Author Ego With 12-Step Humanity:

"One of the things is that—who was it? Shakespeare, somebody; no! I don’t want to go there, I don’t want to quote Shakespeare—we’re all wardens of our own past. There is a tendency to be either the hero or antihero of your own narrative. And in that sense, all misdemeanors become felonies. And random acts of kindness become shimmering examples of the narrator’s own humanity. And I think that’s sort of embedded in people. And I think you gotta watch it. But I say that as somebody who hasn’t typed a word.”
