May Buzz Pick: Empire of Pain by Patrick Radden Keefe

We’re all abuzz for our May Buzz Pick of the Month: Empire of Pain by Patrick Radden Keefe! Stay with @IndieBookBuzz and Bookfinity all month long as we highlight this ferociously compelling portrait of one of the richest families in the world, told by the award-winning, bestselling author of Say Nothing.

Join us with Doubleday Books on May 25th for an exclusive virtual event, where Patrick and Ingram Lead Content Manager Gail Vinett will talk about Empire of Pain. A masterpiece of narrative reporting, Patrick’s portrait of excess centers on three generations of the Sackler family, whose fortune was built by Valium and whose reputation was destroyed by OxyContin. It’s a book – and conversation – not to be missed!
