A. A. Gill s memoir begins in the dark of a dormitory with six strangers. He is an alcoholic, dying in the last-chance saloon - driven to dry out, not out of a desire to change but mainly through weariness. He tells the truth - as far as he can remember it - about drinking and about what it is like to be drunk. Pour Me is about the black-outs, the collapse, the despair: Pockets were a constant source of surprise - a lamb chop, a votive candle, earrings, notes written on paper and ripped from books, and even, once, a pigeon. Morning pockets, he says, were like tiny crime scenes. He recalls the lost days, lost friends, failed marriages ... But there was also an optimum inebriation, a time when it was all golden, when the drink and the pleasure made sense and were brilliant . Sobriety regained, there are painterly descriptions of people and places, unforgettable musings about childhood and family, art and religion, friendships and fatherhood; and, most movingly, the connections between his cooking, dyslexia and his missing brother. Full of raw and unvarnished truths, exquisitely written throughout, Pour Me is about lost time and self-discovery. Lacerating, unflinching, uplifting, it is a classic about drunken abandon.
