Fifteen million Americans a year are plagued with alcoholism. Five million of them are women. Many of them, like Caroline Knapp, started in their early teens and began to use alcohol as "liquid armor", a way to protect themselves against the difficult realities of life. In this extraordinarily candid and revealing memoir, Knapp offers important insights not only about alcoholism, but about life itself and how we learn to cope with it.

Amazing narration and very conversational story
The narrator of this book is excellent.It is not author of the book but sounds like she is. I feel like this woman is sitting next to me telling her story.
there are many...Just the honesty and accuracy of the unfolding life and the analysis of those small subtle moments in her life that stayed with her.
Haven't listened to this lady until now but you can be very sure I will look for other books she has narrated. A real natural. Probably the best I have heard.
I see it now...
Great Storyteller, both the author and the narrator. Probably the only audio book that has had my attention the entire time.

Enjoyed this more than I thought i would
I really enjoyed this book and sometimes forgot it was a true memoir. I constantly wanted to know what happened next. I Was saddened to learn after reading this book that she died at only 42 from Lung Cancer.
