This review is from: Drinking Diaries: Women Serve Their Stories Straight Up (Paperback)
This collection contains smart, heartfelt essays from terrific writers like Daphne Merkin and Joyce Maynard--and some other newbies that you may not know (but will WANT to). Far from a collection of sob stories about alcoholism, these essays open the subject of women and drinking WAY up: the joys, the silliness, the sex, the fights, the pleasures. I related, and, I'll admit, it caused me to look at my own drinking in a slightly more clear eyed way.
