Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0899509894, Hardcover)

Absinthe produced a sense of euphoria, similar to the effect of cocaine and opium, but was addictive and caused a rapid loss of mental and physical faculties. Despite that, Picasso, Manet, Rimbaud and Wilde were among those devoted to the "green fairy," and produced writings and art influenced by absinthe.
