Books for Boozers

Post by Palinka (RIP) »

Do check out these books:
a) "Bourbon Empire"
b) "Empire of Booze".
and, perhaps most importantly of all:
c) "The Modern Drunkard Handbook"*.

Do you have any booze-ridden books that you feel should be added, in order to make the definitive list of books that every hoocher should have?


* And why not take out a subscription to the superb depositary of knowledge thai is "The Modern Drunkard Magazine"?

Anything Hemingway is wild...especially 'A Movable Feast'. Just a whole book on him getting drunk in Parisian cafes.

I'll third the Kingsley Amis vote..'On Drink' is a book every real drinker should give a go.

I didn't bother with Thomson for ages after not really loving 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas'....however i recently fuckin loved 'The Rum Diary' so what do i know?

Also Beer Gods fuckin bless Henry Charles Bukowski....

No so much drinking related but I also love all the 'Song of Ice and Fire' series....I AM ROBERT BARATHEON.

The onion Eaters by JP DUnleavy is a masterpiece in that when undrunk one feels drunk reading it. Also great for his use of many archaic bottle sizes and unlikely monsters
