Down the Drain by Julia Fox Book Summary

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The hotly anticipated book from “one of the all-time pop-culture greats” (New York magazine) that chronicles her shocking life and unyielding determination to not only survive but achieve her dreams.

Julia Fox is famous for many things: her captivating acting, such as her breakout role in the film Uncut Gems; her trendsetting style, including bleached eyebrows, exaggerated eyeshadow, and cutout dresses; her mastery of social media, where she entertains and educates her millions of followers. But all these share the trait for which she is most famous: unabashedly and unapologetically being herself.

This commitment to authenticity has never been more on display than in Down the Drain. With writing that is both eloquent and accessible, Fox recounts her turbulent path to cultural supremacy: her parents’ volatile relationship that divided her childhood between Italy and New York City and left her largely raising herself; a possessive and abusive drug-dealing boyfriend whose torment continued even from within Rikers Island; her own trips to jail as well as to a psychiatric hospital; her work as a dominatrix that led to a complicated entanglement with a sugar daddy; a heroin habit that led to New Orleans trap houses and that she would kick only after the fatal overdose of her best friend; her own near-lethal overdoses and the deaths of still more friends from drugs and suicide; an emotionally explosive, tabloid-dominating romance with a figure she dubs “The Artist”; a whirlwind, short-lived marriage and her trials as a single parent striving to support her young son. Yet as extraordinary as her story is, its universality is what makes it so powerful. Fox doesn’t just capture her improbable evolution from grade-school outcast to fashion-world icon, she captures her transition from girlhood to womanhood to motherhood. Family and friendship, sex and death, violence and love, money and power, innocence and experience—it’s all here, in raw, remarkable, and riveting detail.

More than a year before the book’s publication, Fox’s description of it as “a masterpiece” in a red carpet interview went viral. As always, she was just being honest. Down the Drain is a true literary achievement, as one-of-a-kind as its author.

Raw and captivating. Julia’s life is even more fascinating than the public persona we’ve come to know over the past 3 years and she does a great job of narrating her own story! The prose is just like her: raw, captivating, relentlessly authentic and slightly confusing but it all ultimately works out. I think she still has a long way to go in terms of healing and I can’t wait to see the stories she shares with us in the future.

A great escape. A shockingly well written biographical book. A raw insight into subcultures, with highs and lows filled with fascinating characters. Well done!

Narration. That’s all

Wow.. One of the best memoirs I’ve ever read. So real, raw and detailed. She left it all on the table for better or worse. Powerful.

Could not put it down!. Julia Fox totally draws you in with her candid stories and vulnerability. She is a smart, loyal and strong woman. Everyone should know her story.

Devoured in a day. I went on a literary day bender with this book. This was the best celebrity memoir I have ever read. Highly recommend! Since I can’t get enough of Julia, I’ll be streaming her podcast “Forbidden Fruits” tonight.

What A Woman. Excellent, honest, and moving.

“Down the Drain”. Loved this book. Read it so fast. Julia is so real, raw, vulnerable and a survivor! Such a Queen. What a Life and can’t wait to see what she does next!
