Patrick Radden Keefe, Empire of Pain: The Secret History of the Sackler Dynasty
Presented in partnership with Solid State Books.

A grand, devastating portrait of three generations of the Sackler family, famed for their philanthropy, whose fortune was built by Valium and whose reputation was destroyed by OxyContin, by the prize-winning, bestselling author of Say Nothing, Patrick Radden Keefe.

Empire of Pain is a masterpiece of narrative reporting and writing, exhaustively documented and ferociously compelling. It is a portrait of the excesses of America’s second Gilded Age, a study of impunity among the super elite and a relentless investigation of the naked greed and indifference to human suffering that built one of the world’s great fortunes.

Join New America's Fellows Program and Future Tense for a conversation with Patrick Radden Keefe, Class of 2017 and, and Rachel Aviv, Class of 2019, about this saga of a single family and the mark they would leave on the world.
