The Alcoholic by Jonathan Ames

From the Amazon Review: "I sat down and read The Alcoholic from cover to cover. I immersed myself in it. Ames takes you right inside his world, the highs, the lows, the humiliating moments, and those rare moments of insight that each of us get in small doses from time to time. He avoids the temptation to slap a happily-ever-after ending on it, leaving things open and ambiguous. A great read, and the drawings add a lot."
DJE: This is an extraordinary book, a graphic novel, about alcohol and drug addiction.
