The story begins in a Northern Wisconsin resort area, and is told by Sarah Ann Bray Regent. She and her husband purchased a bar after he was injured in a bar fight. Good thinking! She was against buying a bar from the start. No one in their right mind would take over a condemned kitchen and try to make a go of it. She did it, though, and the business was booming. Her worst problem was the drinking, hers and his. After the birth of her last son, Bobby, at age forty-three Sarah decides to quit drinking. She hates the life they are living in the bar, Carl's mental and physical abuse, and her own abuse of alcohol. Ilka, a lady she has befriended, puts her in touch with Alcohol Anonymous. When she stopped drinking, the physical abuse and Carl's infidelity get worse. He beat her so badly in an angry rage that she is taken to the hospital by ambulance and almost dies. Carl is passed out drunk, while Bobby sleeps. After her release from the hospital, Social Service arranges a stay for her and Bobby in a small motel, they use as a safe house. Sarah uses the recuperation time to heal and think back on her life. She needs to find out why the alcohol she has always hated has become the center of her life. Each day while Bobby is in school, she relaxes, while healing, with her coffee and recalls her past. As she clears the clutter from her head, it becomes evident how she had fallen into the trap that had plagued her family for generations. Is she strong enough anymore to make it on her own? Her self-esteem and strength are at ground zero. Ilka spends as much time as possible with them. Their friendship grows and Sarah's strength returns. With very few resources she makes a good life for her son and herself, only to have her health fail. She and her son move back to Fennimore, in the southwestern corner of the state. This is Sarah's hometown and her family is close by. She learns that brain surgery is needed. Now she has three major battles, a battle with the bottle which is never ending, her health, and raising a teen-age son in a world that has moved ahead while she was lost in a bottle.

Offering a unique theoretical foundation to understanding the lived experience of the active alcoholic, Denzin asserts that alcoholism is a disease in which negative emotions divide the self into warring, inner factions, fueled and distorted by alcoholic intoxication. The work is solidly anchored in a long-term study of the socialization experiences that began in alcoholism treatment centers and continue in Alcoholics Anonymous recovery programs. It covers the treatment process, the restructuring of self, the alcoholic's interaction with his recovery treatment program, and the modalities of self-transcendence that result from treatment.

The acclaimed New York Times–bestselling biography and “emotionally detailed portrait of the artist as a young man” (Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times) Since his untimely death by suicide at the age of forty-six in 2008, David Foster Wallace has become more than the representative writer of his literary generation—he has become a symbol of sincerity and honesty in an inauthentic age, a figure whose reputation and reach grow by the day. In this compulsively readable biography, D. T. Max charts Wallace’s tormented, anguished, and often triumphant battle to succeed as a novelist as he fights off depression and addiction to emerge with his masterpiece, Infinite Jest. Written with the cooperation of Wallace family members and friends and with access to hundreds of Wallace’s unpublished letters, manuscripts, and journals, this revelatory biography illuminates the unique connections between Wallace’s life and his fiction in a gripping and deeply moving narrative that will transfix readers.

Born into a world ruled and defined by the cocktail hour, in which the solution to any problem could be found in a dry martini or another glass of wine, Susan Cheever led a life both charmed and damned. She and her father, the celebrated writer John Cheever, were deeply affected and troubled by alcohol. Addressing for the first time the profound effects that alcohol had on her life, in shaping of her relationships with men and in influencing her as a writer, Susan Cheever delivers an elegant memoir of clear-eyed candor and unsettling immediacy. She tells of her childhood obsession with the niceties of cocktails and all that they implied -- sociability, sophistication, status; of college days spent drinking beer and cheap wine; of her three failed marriages, in which alcohol was the inescapable component, of a way of life that brought her perilously close to the edge. At once devastating and inspiring, Note Found in a Bottle offers a startlingly intimate portrait of the alcoholic's life -- and of the corageous journey to recovery.

A National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist 'Autobiography' The renowned biographer’s unforgettable portrait of a family in ruins—his own. Meet the Baileys: Burck, a prosperous lawyer once voted the American Legion’s “Citizen of the Year” in his tiny hometown of Vinita, Oklahoma; his wife Marlies, who longs to recapture her festive life in Greenwich Village as a fetching young German immigrant, fresh off the boat; their addled son Scott, who repeatedly crashes the family Porsche; and Blake, the younger son, trying to find a way through the storm. “You’re gonna be just like me,” a drunken Scott taunts him. “You’re gonna be worse.” Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award and finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, Blake Bailey has been hailed as “addictively readable” (New York Times) and praised for his ability to capture lives “compellingly and in harrowing detail” (Time). The Splendid Things We Planned is his darkly funny account of growing up in the shadow of an erratic and increasingly dangerous brother, an exhilarating and sometimes harrowing story that culminates in one unforgettable Christmas.
