The Least of Us: True Tales of America and Hope in the Time of Fentanyl and Meth

Sam Quinones is a Los Angeles–based freelance journalist, former LA Times reporter, and author of four books of narrative nonfiction, including, in 2015, Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic, which awakened the country to the nationwide scourge of addiction to opioids and heroin. 

The Least of Us: True Tales of America and Hope in the Time of Fentanyl and Meth chronicles how America’s opioid epidemic has evolved from opioids into illicit synthetic drugs. Weaving analysis of the drug trade into stories of humble communities, it delivers an unexpected and awe-inspiring response to the call that shocked the nation in Quinones’s award-winning Dreamland.
