Description

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2016 PEN ACKERLEY PRIZE'An intense, succulent read that's intermittently dazzling' THE TIMES'Chilling, exquisitely moving' DAILY TELEGRAPH'A superb memoir - and one of the best books on addiction I have ever read' EVENING STANDARDA.

A. Gill's memoir begins in the dark of a dormitory with six strangers.

He is an alcoholic, dying in the last-chance saloon.

He tells the truth - as far as he can remember it - about drinking and about what it is like to be drunk.

He recalls the lost days, lost friends, failed marriages ...

But there was also an 'optimum inebriation, a time when it was all golden'. Sobriety regained, there are painterly descriptions of people and places, unforgettable musings about childhood and family, art and religion; and most movingly, the connections between his cooking, dyslexia and his missing brother.

Full of raw and unvarnished truths, exquisitely written throughout, POUR ME is about lost time and self-discovery.

Lacerating, unflinching, uplifting, it is a classic about drunken abandon.
