A searingly powerful memoir about the impact of addiction on a family. In the summer of 2012, Eva Rausing was found dead in the London townhouse she shared with her husband, Hans Rausing of the renowned Rausing family, one of the wealthiest families in Sweden. The couple had struggled with drug addiction for years, often under the glare of tabloid headlines. Now, writing with singular clarity and restraint the editor and publisher Sigrid Rausing tries to make sense of what happened to her brother and his wife. In Mayhem, she asks the difficult questions those close to the world of addiction must face. - Who can help the addict, consumed by a shaming hunger, a need beyond control? There is no medicine: the drugs are the medicine. And who can help their families, so implicated in the self-destruction of the addict? Who can help when the very notion of 'help' becomes synonymous with an exercise of power; a familial police state; an end to freedom, in the addict's mind?
