Leslie Jamison in Conversation With Elena Passarello

With its deeply personal and seamless blend of memoir, cultural history, literary criticism, and reportage, Leslie Jamison’s The Recovering: Intoxication and Its Aftermath (Little, Brown) turns our understanding of the traditional addiction narrative on its head, demonstrating that the story of recovery can be every bit as electrifying as the train wreck itself. Jamison, author of The Empathy Exams, deftly excavates the stories we tell about addiction – both her own and others' – and examines what we want these stories to do and what happens when they fail us. Jamison will be joined in conversation by Elena Passarello, author of Animals Strike Curious Poses.
