- Review by Fork, 2012 Aug 21
As a bright young suburban kid, Norberg held a typical anti-drug attitude until his early teenage years, when his eldest brother Dave admitted to smoking pot and dropping acid. Initially shocked, Sheldon soon starts experimenting. [...] Although he goes to college, he's more interested in partying and dealing drugs than attending classes, and he sees himself as a kind of psychedelic guru for those around him.. . . (more)
BLURBS #"Throughout Confesssions, Norberg makes his point about the pitfalls of drug abuse without sounding preachy, and happily remains an idealist who still believes that the proper use of psychedelics can lead to the greater awareness necessary to create a more enlightened society."
-- Tierney Smith, Relix 12/00
What the author of this autobiography really deals out is irony that, had it been rolled together by Pynchon or even Updike, could not be any more stocious (to borrow some of Norberg's extraordinary lingo).
