One of the valuable functions of a university press is the reprinting of "time lost" classics. In The Lost Weekend (first published in 1944), Charles Jackson tackles the demons and obsessions challenging the alcoholic. Writing in the fictional format of a novel, Jackson was able to bring to vivid life for the reader the tragedy of the alcoholic binge. In a literary style that was both terse and masterful, Jackson's unflinching story of what true alcoholism is and does to human beings is unforgettable. -- Midwest Book Review
