Dundurn Press is thrilled to announce that Brodie Ramin’s The Age of Fentanyl has been shortlisted for the 2021 Ottawa Book Award. Congratulations, Brodie!
In The Age of Fentanyl: Ending the Opioid Crisis, Dr. Brodie Ramin tells the story of the opioid crisis, showing us the disease and cure from his perspective as an addiction doctor working on the front lines. Praised by Steven Pinker, author of Enlightenment Now as a “fascinating, wise, and humane analysis of one of the most pressing health challenges of the 21st century,” The Age of Fentanyl expertly balances the science with messages of hope towards an end to the epidemic.
