Beautiful Things by Hunter Biden is a by-numbers addiction memoir in some ways. It contains deep reflections on the origins of Biden’s alcoholism and crack addiction and descriptions of drug use, strung out behavior, and therefore the seedy side of society that rival the best pulp fiction. Yet what makes this memoir stand apart is, obviously, the very fact that its author is that the only surviving son of a sitting president. I marvel not only at Hunter Biden’s ability to climb out of the depths of his addiction and into sobriety but the very fact that his rampant addiction was so well hidden from most of society.
The Biden family is defined by tragedy. This memoir begins with Beau Biden’s death from a brain tumor in 2015, an event that triggered one among Hunter’s darkest plunges into addiction–and recounts the car accident that took the lives of his biological mother and infant sister. The strength of Beautiful Things is Hunter Biden’s decision to hold back nothing. Throughout the book, I could not fathom how a person who had everything anyone could want, a person who was born into one among the foremost powerful families in the nation, could sink so low. This book is filled with salacious details, and Biden owns his behavior. From driving to the hood to score hard (the street name for crack), to hiding call at posh LA hotels while lowlife parasites rob him blind, this is often the story of a Beau who does everything he can to obliterate himself. Notwithstanding how you feel about President Joe Biden, realize that his family is his greatest accomplishment and his commitment to them is solid, particularly for Hunter.
