Nicotine: A Love Story Up in Smoke

Gregor Hens, a German author and translator, postulates that cigarettes function as punctuation for life. They serve as commas, semi-colons and ellipses, Hens states, as he reflects on his life as a smoker. While now he has giving up his obsession, his meditations are are as philosophical as they are darkly funny. he investigates the nature of the habit, the power of addiction, the effects of nicotine upon the smoker's thought patterns, and includes other famous smokers such as Mark Twain and Italo Sveno. Nicotine always makes for a loyal companion, even if it will eventually kill you.
