Author Dan Peres Opens Up About Writing His Book, "As Needed for Pain"

Dan Peres’s career as an editor at W magazine and details is well known, but little is known about his private life as a high-functioning drug addict. In "As Needed for Pain," Peres lays bare for the first time the extent of his drug use. The book offers a rare glimpse into New York media’s past and a rarefied world of wealth, power and influence. It is also a brilliant, shocking dissection of a life that was pulled back from the brink of destruction.
