The Night of the Gun: A Reporter Investigates the Darkest Story of His Life. His Own. by David Carr

In The Night of the Gun, New York Times reporter and columnist David Carr pens a memoir of his past battles with alcohol and cocaine addiction. Like any addict, though, his memories of the events of his past are either murky at best, if not downright contradictory to the facts. To get to the truth, he decides to investigate his own past as any reporter would, videotaping people he interviews and sifting through medical records. What he found surprised him how wrong his memory was of many of the events from his past, including the night he believed a friend had pulled a gun on him. The Night of the Gun has received positive reviews with Entertainment Weekly saying, "You may not forgive Carr his flamboyant misdeeds as readily as he seems to forgive himself, all the while patting himself on the back for his brutal honesty. But he is an undeniably brilliant and dogged journalist, and he's written an unforgettable memoir."
