Review:

"Caroline Knapp is a rare writer, with a sophisticated, beautifully controlled style. Drinking not only describes a triumph; it is one."

"A remarkable exercise in self-discovery."

"Knapp recounts her love affair passionately. In paragraphs where she nostalgically remembers sloshing vodka over ice, the sensuality of her language can give you a contact high."

"Uncanny, chilling, honest, brave, and a wonderful read."
