The original title of the book: Mayhem: A Memoir

A searingly powerful memoir about the impact of addiction on a family

In the summer of 2012 a woman named Eva was found dead in the London townhouse she shared with her husband, Hans K. Rausing. 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?'

'This is a fierce, lyrical, and lucid memoir that asks agonizing questions about guilt, innocence, and judgment and reminds us how difficult it can be to untangle one from the other' Siri Hustvedt

    Loved this - it could so easily have been a tabloid drama memoir but instead it is a deeply thoughtful (and thought-provoking) account of how addiction affects the family of the addicted. Ranging between philosophy, culture and Sigrid Rausing's personal experiences the book is beautifully written and has given me a completely new perspective on wealth, addiction and family relationships.

    I bought this book because I was led to believe it covered a fascinating story told by a close relative of the subjects. It's nothing like it! Mrs Rausing has written a family biography merged with a research paper on addiction, only lightly touching on her Brother's story. I think the privacy lawyers must have stepped in to stop this being a more open memoir, so it's very disappointing in its content... I'm wanting my money back...
