Alison C. reviewed Happy Hours: Alcohol in a Woman's Life on
Helpful Score: 1
A very important read for anyone interested in the way alcohol impacts women's lives. Very insightful for those dealing with alcohol issues or those dealing with a female loved one with alcohol issues.
Female alcoholics endure greater censure than male alcoholics but receive less help; most treatments are structured for men, though women inhabit a different reality and their addictions can have markedly different causes. "Happy Hours" is the most thorough exploration of this subject to date. These women's stories are profoundly moving, resulting in a major contribution to our understanding of women, addictions, and the interaction between them.
