Ross Fitzgerald & Neal Price, MY LAST DRINK : 32 stories of Recovering Alcoholics, (Connor Court,$29.95)
One of our regular contributors, Ross Fitzgerald, is recovering nicely from open-heart surgery. Having spent several weeks in hospital, he’s now at home, and he appreciates all your good wishes. He isn’t slowing down on the book front, having recently completed the editing, with Neal Price, of ‘My Last Drink : 32 stories of Recovering Alcoholics’ (Connor Court, $29.95, available now). As the blurb notes, the notion of “last drinks” long ago entered the Australian lexicon, but there’s another kind of last drink, the one that an alcoholic takes before she or he gets sober.
