This Just In… Bevel Down: the Absurd Tragic Memoir of an Okie Meth Head by Todd Langley

This is the story of Todd, an intravenous meth addict who lived in Logan County, Oklahoma in the mid 1990s. Bevel Down chronicles the intense events surrounding the tragic climax of his life when he was only 19 years old.

Bevel Down is an edgy tale of crime, friendship and love. The story is relayed with dark humor and unflinching candor. Some of it is to be believed, some of it surely is not.

Todd paints a stirring and brutal picture of poor young people striving to get by in a world where the odds are stacked against them. He even fancies himself to be a bona fide outlaw, a renegade philosopher among a population of sheepish sycophants. But his carefree philosophy is no match for the harder realities that must inevitably accompany this lifestyle. Everything and everyone will collapse around him, even the woman he loves, until Todd must finally face his demons or be consumed by them. Such is the life of a junkie.
