Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The author of the iconic New York Times bestseller Smashed undertakes a quest to confront her own anger.

In the years following the publication of her landmark memoir, Smashed: Story of a Drunken Girlhood, Koren Zailckas stays sober and relegates binge drinking to her past. But a psychological legacy of repression lingers-her sobriety is a loose surface layer atop a hard- packed, unacknowledged rage that wreaks havoc on Koren emotionally and professionally. When a failed relationship leads Koren back to her childhood home, she sinks into emotional crisis-writer's block, depression, anxiety. Only when she begins to apply her research on a book about anger to the turmoil of her own life does she learn what denial has cost her. The result is a blisteringly honest chronicle of the consequences of anger displaced and the balm of anger discovered. Readers who recognized themselves or someone they love in the pages of Smashed will identify with Koren's life-altering exploration and the necessity of exposing anger's origins in order to flourish in love and life as an adult. Combining sophisticated sociological research with a dramatic and deeply personal story that grapples boldly with identity and family, Fury is a dazzling work by a young writer at the height of her powers that is certain to touch a cultural nerve.

Synopsis:

The author of the New York Times bestseller Smashed "puts a voice to a generation with their own issues with rage" (San Francisco Book Review)

Written when she was just twenty-three, Koren Zailckas's memoir Smashed: Story of a Drunken Girlhood became an iconic, bestselling account of her years as a teenaged blackout binge drinker. Fury picks up where Smashed left off, revealing the toxic legacy of Koren's sobriety. Without alcohol to blur her perspective, Koren finds that her good-girl personality is nothing more than a shroud for unacknowledged anger with the potential to wreak havoc on her life. A sophisticated and deeply personal chronicle, Fury hits a cultural nerve. Blazing a trail toward a healthy, empowered identity, Zailckas will astonish and free a generation of young women.
