[nice clean book, minimal shelfwear; jacket shows a trace of scrunching at spine ends, slight fading to spine, minor edgewear to rear panel]. Uncommon novel about "a fine-bred, talented woman who, in the most ladylike way, slips into alcoholism -- and takes the reader with her." "The Lost Weekend" is evoked in the jacket blurb, and the book traces its heroine's descent "from the 'drink to dress with' to the gallon jug of sherry, from the 'non-addictive sleeping pill' to a dependence on drugs to get from from day to day," to the point where she is "physically battered, in d.t.'s, [and] in a strait jacket." She ultimately finds her way to Alcoholics Anonymous, hence her "rebirth."
