“I just read a wonderful book about alcoholism and American writers, The Trip to Echo Spring: On Writers and Drinking [by Olivia Lang]. It’s a fun book by an Englishwoman who is an excellent writer. … She rides around America with fresh eyes, and she’s very perceptive about why these Nobel Prize winners were hopeless alcoholics.”
