Purdue Pharma and the state of Oklahoma recently reached a settlement in a landmark opioid lawsuit. Learn the story of how this drug company changed America.
In this masterful book, Beth Macy takes us into the epicenter of America’s twenty-plus year struggle with opioid addiction. From distressed small communities in Central Appalachia to wealthy suburbs; from disparate cities to once-idyllic farm towns; it’s a heartbreaking trajectory that illustrates how this national crisis has persisted for so long and become so firmly entrenched.
