Starred Review. In this gem of a memoir, Glyde, a talented British writer with two novels under her belt, provides gritty details of her life as an alcoholic. After hitting the bottom, she manages to swim back to the top, providing keen insight into the nature of dependency and the alcohol industry's culpability. Anyone who has been around the block with the bottle will heartily embrace this survivor's story.—Lynne Maxwell

"'What sets this book apart [is that] it is illuminating about the inner emotional damage that leads to wildly self-destructive behaviour; and also about the society that allows such behaviour to flourish... pretty much unputdownable' Nicholas Lezard, Evening Standard 'Insightful... the points raised are important... timely' Guardian 'Eminently practical and personal... one to recommend' John Sutherland, Financial Times 'Depicts with bravery and a blazingly defiant wit an ongoing struggle... [Glyde] puts her experience into the context of a culture that deems alcohol inseparable from fun' Metro"
