Journal Entry 2 by wingshawing at San Diego, California USA on Saturday, May 4, 2024
fascinating tale of an Irishman's struggle with the drink. Spoiler alert! BTW, he won the battle!

the following review is from amazon:
Although much of 'A Drinking Life' is not actually about drinking, it does offer some insights into the drinking condition as well as the human condition. More than that, it's a cracking good read. Pete Hamill writes beautifully and absorbingly, and he's had a fascinating life. The image he constructs of 1940s New York is so vivid that I feel as though I've experienced it myself. Hamill has very skillfully evoked the feel of a specific time and place. In this way, his writing reminds me of the works of Hemingway and Fitzgerald.
