about this book

An instructive, inspiring, and refreshingly irreverent guide that shows aspiring writers how to cast off self-doubt and concoct a stellar memoir.

The award-winning author of an autobiographical newspaper column, Adair Lara has written more than ten books, including the memoir Hold Me Close, Let Me Go. Packed with insight and humor, Naked, Drunk, and Writing is the culmination of her extensive experience as a writer, editor, and teacher. She coaches readers through all of the stages of memoir writing using interactive exercises, illuminating examples, and anecdotes. Writers learn how to take small, manageable steps to break out of their shells and transform themselves into skilled storytellers.
