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
