Drinking Summary


Drinking: A Love Story by Caroline Knapp

'A remarkable exercise in self-discovery.' The New York Times 'What makes her account fascinating is her ruthless dissection of a picture perfect middle-class family, her candid analysis of her high functioningA" journalistic career - a weird kind of elegy to the 1980s.' The Observer Caroline was a discerning drinker and she describes with great passion the pleasures of a silky Merlot or tart Cabernet Sauvignon, and the ease with which she moved from sipping Fume Blanc at the Ritz, to necking double shots of Johnnie Walker at a dingy bar near her office.
