it was ok
bookshelves: memoirs

I loved Caroline Knapp's book, "Drinking: A Love Story" about her struggles with alcoholism; as well as her second book about the bond between humans and their dogs.

I was shocked when I learned of her quick, premature death from lung cancer at the age of 42. I was really looking forward to reading this memior about Caldwell's friendship with Caroline, but I just don't care for her style of writing, and the fact that she spends the first third of the book talking about her own struggles with alcoholism, and not about their friendship.
