9780143120377: Fury: True Tales of a Good Girl Gone Ballistic

The author of the New York Times bestseller Smashed "puts a voice to a generation with their own issues with rage" (San Francisco Book Review)

Written when she was just twenty-three, Koren Zailckas's memoir Smashed: Story of a Drunken Girlhood became an iconic, bestselling account of her years as a teenaged blackout binge drinker. Fury picks up where Smashed left off, revealing the toxic legacy of Koren's sobriety. Without alcohol to blur her perspective, Koren finds that her good-girl personality is nothing more than a shroud for unacknowledged anger with the potential to wreak havoc on her life. A sophisticated and deeply personal chronicle, Fury hits a cultural nerve. Blazing a trail toward a healthy, empowered identity, Zailckas will astonish and free a generation of young women.

About the Author:

Koren Zailckas is the author of the memoir Smashed: Story of a Drunken Girlhood, which appeared on ten national bestseller lists and spent twenty weeks on the The New York Times bestseller list. She lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband and daughter.

From Booklist:

Zailckas, who was dubbed “the face of teenage binge drinking” for her best-selling coming-of-age memoir Smashed (2005), offers another raw, memorable chronicle of emotional recovery. The project’s trajectory is eerie. While researching a book on anger, Zailckas falls for a British rock musician and follows him to England, where they break up in a seismic night of bitterness and rage. Back home with her parents, twentysomething Zailckas attempts to pull herself out of catatonic grief with homeopathic remedies and endless reading: “I think I can elude my own emotions by crawling into my research and dying there.” Incorporating quotes from diverse sources, from psychologists and psychiatrists to peace activists and even Shakespeare and Nabokov, Zailckas connects theories about anger with her own life experiences, and what begins as an abstract inquiry into anger becomes, in fact, an intimate, lyrical portrait of a young woman’s discovery of love and understanding. More than the numerous quotes from authoritative voices, all meticulously sourced in an appendix, it’s Zailckas’ confessional, vivid personal stories that will stay with readers. --Gillian Engberg
