69 / Intoxication

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.
