Rumpus-founder Stephen Elliott, who came to read from his book, The Adderall Diaries, in Pittsburgh earlier this year (thanks to the determined efforts of Pitt student Vessa Yankevich), is releasing the "true crime" book in paperback. The book has now been optioned by James Franco for a film.
You can read the Truthdig interview, called "The Art of the Overshare" by Sheerly Avni here.
The now notorious James Frey (of A Million Little Pieces) chatted about Elliott at Gawker before. Read that here.
