Anonüümne “Go Ask Alice”

EST: „Eile ostsin selle päeviku, arvates, et lõpuks ometi on mul midagi imelist, midagi väärtuslikku öelda …“ Need on esimesed read viieteistaastase tüdruku päevikust. Nagu enamikul temaealistel on temagi peamiseks mureks kool, poisid, tema enese juuksed ja sobitumine. Kuid vastupidiselt loodetule saab päevik tunnistajaks tüdruku allakäiguspiraalile alates päevast, mil talle esimest korda pakutakse seltskonnas uimasteid. Sellest hetkest algab tõeline hipi-ajastu valgustusreis mõnuainete maailma.

See on karm lugu teismelise tüdruku võitlusest sõltuvusega, sooviga kord pääseda, et siis jälle tagasi pimedusse sukelduda. Raamatust sai bestseller, mille populaarsus on püsinud tänaseni kui pidada silmas arvukaid kordustrükke juba nelja kümnendi jooksul alates raamatu ilmumisest.


ENG: „Yesterday I bought this diary because I thought at last I`d have something wonderful and great and worthwhile to say …“ These are the first lines of the diary of a fifteen-year-old girl who, like most teenagers is mostly concerned with school, boys, her hair and fitting in. Instead, the diary becomes the keepsake of her downward spiral from the day when she get’s introduced into the world of drugs. From there, she is set on a path of hippie-era enlightenment, experimenting with uppers, downers, hallucinogens and marijana … trying to escape and diving back into darkness.

This is a ruthless story of one teenager battling addiction. Go Ask Alice became a widely popular bestseller. Nevertheless, its popularity has endured, and as of 2014 it had remained continuously in print since its publication over four decades earlier.
