"Author Martha Grimes, best known for her Richard Jury mysteries, was heavily addicted to alcohol for 30 years, finally seeking help in 1990. Her son Ken became an alcoholic at age 13, also going into therapy in 1990. Alternating chapters in this memoir that focuses on their alcoholism, their relationship with each other, and their recovery, the mother and son duo explore the nature of addiction with honesty and eloquence, providing insight into the individual yet universal qualities of their experiences."
