Thursday’s Geoff Rickly To Release His First Novel In July


Thursday/No Devotion vocalist Geoff Rickly is preparing to issue his first novel this summer. Rose Books will be publishing that tome, which is a fictionalized retelling of his own experiences seeking ibogaine treatment in Mexico to curb his drug addiction.

Rickly himself has previously spoken of his past crippling addiction to heroin and opiates. Rickly has titled this new book ‘Someone Who Isn’t Me‘. Pre-orders for the book can be found here, where the following plot synopsis was also offered:

Geoff Rickly’s debut novel Someone Who Isn’t Me is a feverish journey through the psyche of someone who no longer recognizes himself. When Geoff hears that a drug called ibogaine might be able to save him from his heroin addiction, he goes to a clinic in Mexico to confront the darkest and most destructive versions of himself. In this modern reimagining of the Divine Comedy, survival lurks in the darkest corners of Geoff’s brain, asking, will he make it? Can anyone?’
