for life, argues Gregor Hens, a German author and translator They make it coherent and add drama, inserting commas, semi colons and ellipses and, in the end, an inarguable and often premature full stop Smoking is bad for you, but that doesnt mean it cant be fun Economist, Books of the Year 2017 SelectionPart memoir, part discourse on the nature of addiction and withdrawal Wall Street Journalpart memoir, part philosophical lamentwhen Nicotine stays dry, earthy and combustible, like a Virginia tobacco blend, it has a lot to say and says it well Hens sees this book as a chance finally to put the urge behind him, to comprehend it, seal it and bury itLike any author worth reading, Mr Hens is sometimes best when he goes off topic, dispatching obiter dictaHis lapidary prose will sometimes put you in mind of the chain smoking Norwegian writer Karl Ove Knausgaards Dwight Garner, The New York Times Nicotine is a chronicle of his year overcoming the habit The book is a slim but plaintive memoria to a lost love a philosophical meditation on the nature of addiction, the listlessness, the frustration and the sense of grief one feels at the loss of a fix Its structure is reminiscent of the memoryscapes of W.G Sebald, including the strange, captionless photographs This intelligent, literary volume plumbs Mark Twain, Italo Svevo and Van Morrison But make no mistake Nicotine isnt a self help book Its not an anti smoking screed Nor is it a love sonnet to tobacco Its an honest exposition of the emotional complexity of quitting The Washington PostIn this extended, diaristic essay peppered with Sebaldian photos and the names of forgotten Euro brands, Hens writes philosophically about his own struggles to break the habit and his memories of a life spent in the long shadow of an extended family of big league tobacco users Tobacco, labeling, and landscape all combine with a snapshot immediacy, powerful and pleasant, that gives flavor and color to Henss discovery of the wider world, in all its variety, and to moments of great personal significance If its hard to communicate to nonsmokers how physically and mentally difficult it is to quit, Henss memories of nicotine make it palpable to anyone why, even once youve stopped smoking, youre never quite over it Eric Banks, Director of the New York Institute for the Humanities at NYU, Four Columns it is by association with nicotine that Hens shows us what he wants us to know about his life People will connect his book with Aldous Huxleys Doors of Perception, and Im sure Hens had that volume in mind, but if Nicotine has a literary progenitor I would say that it is In Search of Lost Time, in which Proust made the material of seven volumes bloom out of one French cookie dunked in a cup of tea Nicotine is much shorter, only a hundred and fifty seven pages, but Hens uses a similar alchemy to transform the things of his worldthe family in which he grew up, in Cologne his former home in Columbus, where he taught German literature at Ohio State his apartment in Berlin, where he lives with his wife, and produces novels and translationsinto whole relay stations of poetic force, humming and sparking and chugging an extraordinary act of literary finesse with tinkling little notes of comedyhis story becomes captivatinglaced with a saving ironyby being told through the medium of something as humble as tobacco The book, too, ends with love and cigarettesIt is a strange combination, love and smoke, but there is a long streak of strangeness in German artcolors you didnt expect Caspar David Friedrich, Max Beckmann , Venuses who arent pretty Cranach, Altdorfer which nevertheless feels like life A dark, lovely, funny book New Yorker A satisfying wisp of an essay about tobacco, addiction, first cigarettes, last cigarettes, breathing, kissing, hypnosis, literature, memory, and marking time Nicotine is a smoke ring, blown perfectly in a single puff, or better a wafting trail of vapor Will Self contributes a foreword, a rapid monologue punctuated with vigorous little twists, as though he were grinding out a stub with yellow stained fingers Harper s Nicotine is loosely constructed in short, stream of consciousness vignettes Hens supplements his personal anecdotes by sharing cultural customs related to smoking, especially during his formative years in the 1970s and 1980s Tidbits of history are woven throughout, including Adolf Hitler s anti smoking stance and Mark Twain s wit on the subject The writing is detailed, fluid and sensual The acute memories he shares about people who have crossed his path are especially appealing he retells stories about those with whom he s shared smokes, from family members to strangers, and even his attempts to quit, including a visit to an eccentric hypnotist in Columbus, Ohio Smoking and cigarettes might not be good for the health of the body, but Hens s glimpse through the prism of addiction offers an enriching and enlightening account that benefits the mind and the soul Shelf Awareness Nicotine is not another finger wagging treatise on the evils of smoking Nor is it a boring, triumphant tale of how one can muster the willpower to dump the cigarettes and replace them with a diet of unpasteurized goats milk and raw parsnips Indeed, in the books postscript, Mr Hens reminds readers that he doesnt want to persuade you to do anything Help yourself if you want to, or dont Instead this is a wonderfully meandering memoir, beautifully written, in which Mr Hens recalls formative experiences through the experience of smokingbecause cigarettes were always present while also exploring the psychology of an addict But reading Nicotine made me wonder if, like Mr Hens, each one of those cigarettes meant something to me, even the thousands that I dont recall smoking Remembering shared cigarettes with long forgotten friends, chain smoking ex girlfriends, strangers in bars and that one time I smoked on a plane, I suspect hes right Wall Street JournalHenss short book is an idiosyncratic and thought provoking essay on the grip of nicotine, how it shaped his life, and how it still factors into his life despite having quit smoking decades ago Hens gives readers an understanding of what it is like to have an addiction, albeit a legal one, and how the end of an addiction can be felt as a loss Publishers WeeklyIn his unorthodox and candid memoir, German writer and translator Hens discusses his longtime addiction to cigarettes, his eventual recovery, and the ongoing battle with his addictive personality to fight the ever present urge to smoke The author is an idiosyncratic stylist whose sentences are often terse and elliptical, and Calleja s translation ably captures his unique voice In a book that is as much a paean to smoking as it is a eulogy, Hens is both poetic and unforgiving about the pleasures and pains of smoking Kirkus ReviewsEvery cigarette Ive ever smoked now seems, in retrospect, like little than preparation for this remarkable essaythough nothing in me could have anticipated its exquisitely surprising brilliance, the precision and play of its intellect Its about smoking, sure, but its also about a luminous and nuanced exploration of how were constituted by our obsessions, how our memories arrange themselves inside of us, and howor ifwe control our own lives Leslie JamisonHens endured and he wrote about it, resulting in this excellent personal work on the fetishisation, the ceremony and the compulsions of the smoker Nicotine is a meandering journey through a life of everyday addiction, soaked in memories stained sepia by tobacco smoke The writing is superb, an unclassifiable mix of freeform thought and transcribed memory, reminiscent of the wonderful essayist Geoff Dyer Its malleable structure, through sheer skill and confidence, allow the many digressions to remain ever valid and precise Insightful and honest The Skinny Elegant, lucid and consistently entertaining The SpectatorIn his short, perceptive and thoroughly absorbing memoir, Nicotine, German author and Ohio State University linguistics professor Gregor Hens differentiates between the putative last cigarette, the one butted out on New Year s Eve or other such occasion of swearing off for good and the relapse cigarette, the first one inhaled after a period of going without And there s no question which of the two has afforded him greater pleasure Hens leavens his anecdotal recollections with appreciable humour Prepare to be hooked from the first sentence Globe and Mail Nicotine is a serious investigation Hens memories spun as stories, for he is a piquant, enchanting storyteller follow one after another, though not before they have been surgically dissected for elements of self discovery lurking in that memorys cigarette Will Selfs introduction is a gloriously mad prelude, dragging luxuriously, gratifyingly on tobaccos of Stygian darkness and Samsonian strength, which, the nicotine rapidly absorbed, jump starts the nasty state of withdrawal, and thus mistakes the relief of these symptomsWhile Hens searches for his addictions source genetics, Freudian, exposure and submits to hypnosis trance, he offers flashes of Cigarette Power and despite qualms that the last cigarette might extinguish his access to literarily fertile material, Nicotine is proof positive that Hens still has the stuff The San Francisco ChronicleReaders and smokers and especially readers who smoke will be grateful that Mr Hens wrote Nicotine despite the risk of relapse It is that rare book on addiction neither preaching nor self loathing, lapsing only occasionally into romanticism And like the best cigarettes, it is over too soon The EconomistCigarettes are an overwrought cultural fixation There are too many books, essays, movies, and songs about cigarettes But Nicotine somehow manages to feel fresh in spite of that Ultimately, its a book about longing, and you dont need to be a current or former smoker to relate to that Aude White, New York MagazineOne things that sets Nicotine apart from other books of its kind is that, while firmly planted in the realm of memoirs, it deviates from time to time and becomes a narrative about exploring the self, a story about an entire family and their relationship to smoking, and even turns into something akin to investigative journalism when the author looks at the manufacturing and marketing of cigarettes Throughout all those, the pace is enjoyable, the chapters go by fast, and the writing is always engaging regardless of what the author is discussing at the time A series of photos that relate to the narrative are sprinkled throughout and add a touch of visual storytelling to the book Ultimately, Nicotine shines because Hens delivers his personal history while also exploring the way humans are shaped by their obsessions Gritty, funny, multilayered, and rich in diversity of themes explored, this is a memoir that transcends its genre and demands to be read as much than just a man s look at his lifetime inhaling smoke LitReactor Nicotine is a book about cigarettes merely on its surface, but it feels important that Hens opens with the sheer volume hes smoked to illustrate, if nothing else, how significantly this object is entwined in his past Hens no longer smokes, but the question now is what have all these cigarettes meant, and where does he go from here What makes this story, and other addiction narratives, so captivating is that, according to Hens, they frequently function as often unexpected insights Kirkus Reviews Nicotine is nothing like a manual for giving up smoking it does not berate the smoker or extol the healthy benefits of giving up the habit It is like an ode, ironic but poetic, to the eponymous drug that does irreversible damage, yet gives its user a sensation of control and calm, of time passing and occasion remembering that is hard to set aside once one has experienced it While Hens has clearly quit, and notes good reasons for doing so, including the simple ability to choose to do what he wants, he does not condemn the sinneror the sin BookReporter.comIrresistibly humorous, eminently readable and concerned with a contentious issue that continues to be hotly debated, Nicotineis the fascinating autobiographical account of one mans addiction to smoking Writing with the passion of an obsessive, the author analyses how his addiction has shaped his thought and behaviour patterns in ways that would initially appear to be entirely unrelated to cigarettes New Books in GermanNicotine is a fascinating examination of the powerful physical and psychological hold that tobacco holds over its addicts, as viewed through the life experiences of German writer and translator Gregor Hens Packed with highly personal insights that only someone with a decades long smoking habit could summon, Nicotine is both a sobering testament to the power of tobaccos icy grip as well as a counterbalance to the demonizing social pressures that lead many to finally quit World Literature TodayNicotine grows into a deeply personal and philosophical meditation that covers a lot of ground in a short number of pages Hens examines, with clarity and precision, the mysterious interactions of memory, desire, and free will, not so much by remembering every cigarette, but by remembering everything that happened around each cigarette ArtsFuse A sober and serious discourse on what should always be a sober and serious subject addiction PopMattersA passionate attempt to banish the addiction through words sf magazin I dont smoke any , but there are always moments when I can think of nothing else but cigarettes This is one of those moments I really shouldnt write this book, its much too risky But Hens neednt worry that this book might bring him harm for even if he does start smoking again one day, Nicotinemay well be his most successful book yet Die Zeit This is not a story about quitting, but an accomplished and unsettling meditation on ones own addiction Die ZeitBy turns philosophical and darkly comic, an ex smoker s meditation on the nature and consequences of his nearly lifelong addiction Written with the passion of an obsessive, Nicotine addresses a lifelong addiction, from the thrill of the first drag to the perennial last last cigarette Reflecting on his experiences as a smoker from a young age, Gregor Hens investigates the irreversible effects of nicotine on thought and patterns of behavior He extends the conversation with other smokers to meditations on Mark Twain and Italo Svevo, the nature of habit, and the validity of hypnosis With comic insight and meticulous precision, Hens deconstructs every facet of dependency, offering a brilliant analysis of the psychopathology of addiction This is a book about the physical, emotional, and psychological power of nicotine as not only an addictive drug, but also a gateway to memory, a long trail of streetlights in the rearview mirror of a smokers life Cigarettes are sometimes a solace, sometimes a weakness, but always a witness and companion This is a meditation, an ode, and a eulogy, one that will be passed hand to hand between close friends.
