Inhaltsangabe: Actress Mariette Hartley, comedian Louis Anderson, writer Russell Baker, evangelist Jerry Falwell, and other children of alcoholics write about their childhood experiences in an anthology that explores all the dimensions of the pervasive disease. 25,000 first printing. $20,000 ad/promo.
From Booklist: A steadily growing number of children of alcoholics have been coming out of the closet recently, and plenty of them have written books about their experiences. This anthology collects excerpts from the autobiographical writings of 12 children of alcoholics, most of whom are either famous themselves or have famous parents. Many readers will be familiar with the books from which these selections come (Russell Baker's Growing Up and Joyce Maynard's Parenting are the most notable), but for those new to the subject, this volume offers a useful sampler. Not surprisingly, the most moving of the selections are those by professional writers Baker and Maynard, who treat their parents' alcoholism as one aspect of a complex family situation. The other authors--including Suzanne Sommers, Gary Crosby, and Drew Barrymore--tend merely to recite the numerous horrors visited on them as a result of Mom's or Dad's drinking. Still, as polemics designed to inspire other children of alcoholics to talk about their own secrets, these star testimonials are undeniably effective. Ilene Cooper
