Description
(One of the New York Times Book Review's Best Books of 2014) In this captivating and highly original account of how writers in the grip of alcoholism created some of the greatest works of literature, the author of the Ondaatje Prize finalist To the River takes a journey across America, examining the links between creativity and alcohol in the work and lives of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, John Berryman, John Cheever, and Raymond Carver. Olivia Laing strips away the myth of the alcoholic writer to reveal the terrible price creativity can exert in this "charming and gusto-driven look at the alcoholic insanity of six famous writers.... There is much to learn from Laing's supple scholarship—and much to enjoy, too."—NYTBR
