The Alcoholic - Jonathan Ames

Author Jonathan A (really?) is addicted to drugs and alcohol and is trying to make sense of his life, which means a review of it plus the loves, obsessions, writings, family, and 9/11 that goes along with it.  I've seen Ames perform his works a few times and it's great--storytelling is a lost art--, which might be why I didn't care for this so-so written, overcrowded plot. alcoholic
