Happy Hours (Book Review)

Reviews the book 'Happy Hours: Alcohol in a Woman's Life,' by Devon Jersild.

By Paul Chance, published on March 1, 2001 - last reviewed on June 7, 2012

Author Devon Jersild realized that her elder sister, an alcoholic, was ingrave danger of dying -- from an accident, alcohol poisoning, physical abuse, suicide or disease. So she did what all writers do: She learned all she could about the topic and wrote about it. The result, Happy Hours "is aimed at any woman who has ever wondered whether she drinks too heavily or too often, and at anyone who has a sister, mother, grandmother, child or friend whose drinking has caused them concern." If you are any of the above, this book will be a godsend.
