Description

The combination of facts and anecdotes means it’s an interesting and amusing read and I plan to follow Adrian’s example and be more mindful about what I consume alcohol-wise going forwards. This sentimental bird is drawn to the grieving family and threatens to stay until they no longer need him. It really did give me food for thought – in a good way – and I have been waxing lyrical to friends (over drinks!

I always assumed that my friendship group, which was 98% made up of drinkers, merely reflected society, but that’s nonsense. There is some practical advice here, but it is more about presenting an alternative to giving up completely. thinking that on a day on holiday with wine starting at lunchtime, pushing through the afternoon with a beer in the sunshine, cocktails before dinner, and yet more wine with dinner – it probably wasn’t dissimilar units wise. There’s no silver bullet in the book - just a series of sensible measures we can all take to start the process of becoming a Good Drinker. These questions lie at the heart of Stitches, Anne Lamott's follow-up to her New York Times-bestselling work, Help, Thanks, Wow.These poetic prescriptions and wise words of advice offer comfort, delight and inspiration for all; a space for reflection, and that precious realization - I'm not the only one who feels like this. Kate and Mandy are familiar faces in the Club Soda community, and this is not their first book either. Adrian Chiles presents a different proposition to heavy drinkers wanting to do something about it; instead of abstaining, how about drinking in moderation? Ever since he was a teenager, drinking was his idea of a good time – and not just his, but seemingly the whole nation’s. One line particularly stuck with me: ‘If you’re feeling thirsty, it’s almost too late: your body is already dehydrated.

This extraordinary debut, full of unexpected humour and emotional truth, marks the arrival of a thrilling and significant new talent. One of the many benefits was that it was yet another stupid excuse not to curtail my drinking – ‘I do all this running, so I’m sweating all the booze out anyway’, and so on. An extraordinary debut novella by Max Porter, loosely about a family dealing with the immediate period of grief following their mother’s death. Books telling us to give up drinking are 10 a penny, but how about something for those of us who like a social drink but are occasionally worried that two turn into four rather too easily? In this book, she explores how we find meaning and peace in these loud and frantic times; where we start again after personal and public devastation; how we recapture wholeness after loss; and how we locate our true identities in this frazzled age.

This bleak statement is especially true for many pop and rock stars, who find themselves catapulted from fame into obscurity virtually overnight, given the unforgiving vagaries of the music industry.
