At the end of a twenty-three-year love affair with alcohol, Tania Glyde remembers her inner white wine witch. Cleaning Up examines why women drink, how to stop, and what life after alcohol is really like. In this witty and searingly honest memoir, Glyde addresses her party years—from the excuses used for drinking to the ones she used when giving up.
