Matt Samet - Death Grip: A Climber’s Escape from Benzo Madness

Historic LoDo: Colorado rock climber and journalist Matt Samet will discuss and sign his searing memoir Death Grip: A Climber’s Escape from Benzo Madness (St. Martin’s Press), which chronicles his near-fatal struggle with anxiety and depression, and his nightmarish journey through the dangerous world of prescription drugs. After a difficult struggle with addiction, Samet slowly makes his way to a life in recovery through perseverance and a deep love of rock climbing. Conveying both the exhilaration of climbing in the wilderness and the utter madness of addiction, Death Grip is a powerful and revelatory memoir.
