True Tales of a Good Girl Gone Ballistic
Written when she was just twenty-three, Koren Zailckas's memoir Smashed: Story of a Drunken Girlhood became an iconic, bestselling account of her years as a teenaged blackout binge drinker. Fury picks up where Smashed left off, revealing the toxic legacy of Koren's sobriety. Without alcohol to blur her perspective, Koren finds that her good-girl personality is nothing more than a shroud for unacknowledged anger with the potential to wreak havoc on her life. A sophisticated and deeply personal chronicle, Fury hits a cultural nerve. Blazing a trail toward a healthy, empowered identity, Zailckas will astonish and free a generation of young women.
