Though this was highly recommended to me, I was hesitant to read it, expecting a Lifetime movie of a book. Instead, I found Knapp compelling and hard-edged. She laid out her sometimes harrowing story in a way that was clear, strong and never once asked for pity. It was a very fast read and so well-written that despite the devastating tale it made me wish the book were longer.

If you are struggling with your drinking, I urge you to read this book. Especially if you're a middle/upper-middle class, employed, college-educated woman. I think you'll be able to identify on a deep level. I know I did.

I know this sounds dramatic, but this book helped save my life. I bought it 4 years ago, read it in one day, then went to my first AA meeting shortly afterwards. I haven't had a drink since and my life has changed beyond what I expected.

Caroline Knapp was a truly remarkable individual with so much love to give and share. In her short time after recovering from alcohol and other issues she was working through, she gave us her love, wisdom, strength, and hope in her written word.

I have never read an author that has touched my soul like Caroline has. Everyday I think about her, her life, and her legacy. Caroline, even though you are not here in the physical form, you will always be with me in the spiritual form.

When I re-read sections of her books, they tend to always be fresh, alive, and as if I have never read them before.

God speaks and teaches us through people. Caroline, you have given me the two most important lessons for my own alcohol and emotional recovery ? hope and love.

I hope Caroline?s twin sister, Dr. Rebecca Knapp, continues her sister?s legacy by being a voice for Caroline?s struggles.

"Staff Pick" by ,

Drinking: A Love Story is about Caroline Knapp's struggle with alcoholism and getting sober after 20 years of hard drinking. This book spoke to me personally and parallels my life closely. Knapp's writing is so stark and honest that anyone in recovery will see themselves in this book.
