Summary
People who suffer from alcoholism as well as their families and friends know that while it is possible to get sober, there is no one "right" way to do this. Now, mystery writer Martha Grimes and her son Ken offer two points of view on their struggles. In alternating chapters, they share their stories--stories of drinking, recovery, relapse, friendship, travel, work, success, and failure. For Martha, it was about drinking martinis at home, sometimes with friends, sometimes alone. For Ken, it was partying in bars and clubs. Each hit bottom. Martha spent time doing outpatient rehabilitation, once in 1990 and again two years later. Ken began twelve-step recovery. This candid memoir describes how different both the disease and the recovery can look in two different people--even two people who are mother and son.--From publisher description
