Thomas de Quincey - Confession of an English opium-eater

The blueprint for drug-literature and a major influence for writers like Poe and Baudelaire. So, already interesting as milestone in literary history. Fortunately, it's not so badly written either, making it an enjoyable read by itself. Especially like the descriptions of his opium dreams; paranoid, claustrophobic, you get bits with crocodiles and dungeons. Nice stuff.
