In her first book since "The Liar's Club", Karr delves into the autobiographical subject matter of her two early collections. Various beloveds are birthed and buried in these lyrics, some of which--as the title suggests--deal with drink. Exact and surprising, her poems "take on the bedevilments of fate and grief with a diabolical edge of their own" ("Poetry").
