Published: Picador, 12/2013
Olivia Laing combines biography, travel writing, and literary criticism in this facinating examination of the role of alcohol in the lives and work of six notable American authors.  She is sympathetic towards her subjects but not sentimental, and though she appreciates their literary achievements she is honest about the ways in which alcohol destroyed their lives.  The Trip to Echo Spring is an original, complex, and beautifully written book. - Abraham

Book Recommendations

  • $15.00
    DO NOT read if you're easily offended. DO read if you want to know who that telemarketer is who's bothering you at dinner - it's a precocious teen in hell. A hell with floors of rusty razor blades, a valley of used disposable diapers, and CANDY as currency. -Ray

    The people in these pages are so irresistibly ordinary, so petty, hopeful & crazy - most of the time. John Brandon is constantly expanding his convincingly detailed & riveting backdrops, the character histories that lull us repeatedly into a false sense of security while we know that inevitable explosions of violence loom close at hand. This is a unique debut with an Elmore Leonard exterior than thinly conceals a bleak core owing much to Samuel Beckett. - Adam
