From earliest experimentation to habitual excess to full-blown abuse, twenty-four-year-old Koren Zailckas leads us through her experience of a terrifying trend among young girls, exploring how binge drinking becomes routine, how it becomes "the usual."
Koren Zailckas grew up in the suburbs of Boston and attended Syracuse University. She is the author of the New York Times bestseller Smashed: Story of a Drunken Girlhood, a riveting account of her experiences with alcohol abuse as a teenager and college student. Barnes and Noble selected Smashed for its 2005 Discover Great New Writers program. Koren now lives in New York City. Ellen Archer is an acclaimed audiobook narrator and winner of a coveted Audie Award for For the Love of a Dog (available from Tantor).
