Summary

An honest, inspiring, and often humorous dual memoir from bestselling author Martha Grimeswinner of the 2012 Mystery Writers of America Grandmaster Award,and her son, Ken Grimesa public relations executive, that recounts their parallel descent into and recovery from alcoholism. "We were sitting in a coffee shop talking, looking at the view of downtown Charlottesville, Virginia. This was ten years ago, and we had both been off alcohol for more than a decade. We were disagreeing about the best way to stay sober, when my mother said, "I think we should write a book about alcoholism." I sat back. 'We?' 'Both of us. Two points of view.' " To the final page of this dual memoir, Martha and Ken Grimes keep the reader entertained and informed. Double Doubleis a unique and honest, dual memoir of alcoholism, a disease that affects nearly 45 million Americans each year. People who suffer from alcoholism as well as their families and friends know that while it is possible to get soberthere is no one "right" way to do this. Now, award-winning mystery writer Martha Grimes and her son, Ken Grimes, offer two points of view on their struggles with alcoholism. In alternating chapters, they share their storiesstories of drinking, recovery, relapse, friendship, travel, work, success and failure. Double Doubleis an intensely personal, candid and illuminating book, filled with insights, humor, a little self-deprecation, and a lot of self-evaluation.
