Toxique is the candid diary of Françoise Sagan's nine days in a special clinic undergoing detoxification from morphine. After her auto accident in 1957 she was given the drug to allay pain, and thereafter had to be taken off it gradually—the ordeal told in this remarkably vivid and intimate revelation of her sensations and private world.
