Issue 69 / Winter 2019
Writers drunk on lust, life, booze, beauty, words, and the Holy Spirit
In Creative Nonfiction #69: “Intoxication,” writers explore the heady thrills—and, sometimes, dangers—of mother-daughter day-drinking; the Nashville music scene of 1983; finding a new romance in midlife; and surrendering to the Holy Spirit.
Plus, Leslie Jamison de-mythologizes the myth of the Drunk Genius; an argument for more humor in addiction memoirs; a potted history of cocktail coverage; tiny truths; and more.
