What Happens When You Turn a Great Writer Loose on One of His Favorite Topics?
John Turi’s A Drinker With a Writing Problem is just not some collection of wine reviews. Instead it is a collection of Turi’s best wine writing. Each piece is really a story of and about a specific wine.
Each chapter reads like the most interesting wine history lesson in print and simultaneously like a page ripped from the private diary of the most interesting person you know. After reading a review you will not only want to go and find the wine right away, you will find yourself wishing you could share a bottle with the author.
Some reviews increase your knowledge and shape your opinion. These reviews do that, but more importantly they infect the reader with the same passion for wine that radiates from every one of Turi’s paragraphs.
If you love wine you need this book. If you love great writing you need this book. If you love great wine writing your life will not be complete until you add this collection to your personal library.
Praise for John Turi and A Drinker With a Writing Problem:
Best book about wine and the love of wine I've ever read. The author's personal touch through out every chapter makes for some very compelling reading, it was hard to put the book down. – David Burrell
John’s wine reviews are part history lesson, part personal epiphany, part peep show, part discovery, and they are always peppered with a dash of enthusiastic admiration. - Ken Robidoux, Founding Editor-in-Chief of ConnotationPress.com

From the Foreword by Ken Robidoux, Founding Editor-in-Chief of ConnotationPress.com - John’s wine reviews are part history lesson, part personal epiphany, part peep show, part discovery, and they are always peppered with a dash of enthusiastic admiration. You see, John doesn't write reviews for wines he doesn't like. He leaves that for the professionals. John only reviews wines he loves, and his reviews reflect that in an especially clear way. For John these reviews are personal. Those of us who are fans of his work are just grateful to have been asked to go along for the ride. With that I welcome you to thumb through the pages of this book, in any particular order you’d like, and allow yourself a little time to experience what happens when an exceptional person brings their passion to exceptional subject matter. I promise you will not only learn something, you’ll do so eagerly with each review you enjoy.
