Editorial Reviews

Review

“Quietly moving . . . Caroline Knapp dazzles us with her heady description of alcohol's allure and its devastating hold.”Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Filled with hard-won wisdom . . . [a] perceptive and revealing book.”San Francisco Chronicle 

“Eloquent . . . a remarkable exercise in self-discovery.”The New York Times 

Drinking not only describes triumph; it is one.”Newsweek

Amazon.com Review

The roots of alcoholism in the life of a brilliant daughter of an upper-class family are explored in this stylistic, literary memoir of drinking by a Massachusetts journalist. Caroline Knapp describes how the distorted world of her well-to-do parents pushed her toward anexoria and then alcoholism. Fittingly, it was literature that saved her: She found inspiration in Pete Hamill's A Drinking Life and sobered up. Her tale is spiced with the characters she's known along the way. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
