About this product
- DescriptionAn alcoholic on awakening is much like a newborn babyfragile and without any defense against a very sober world. September Remember begins with a terrifyingand darkly funny blackoutthe sort of a blackout that pulls you right into the mind of a drunk on the loose. Reading it, I was reminded of my AA friend picking me up in his truck, the uncertainty of that boozy hazy evening. The blackout is t the story of September Remember, but it s that darkness that will suck you into this story.When published, September Remember was a best seller, and the first kwn vel that put AA into literary consciousness. It s been out of print w for over 60 years.The book is full of language and prejudices that are reflective of its time. That was the time of America between the two world wars: more than twenty years before Martin Luther King s I Have a Dream speech, years before women made it out of the kitchen into the living room, and years before new immigrants were only recognizable by the derogatory terms used to describe them. In that way, September Remember can be treated as a historical document that mentions Alcoholics Anymous, but it is much more than that: its mythology is essentially AA s, a story of rebirth and redemption.
