Like the contemporary masterpieces The Liars' Club, Autobiography of a Face, and Jarhead, Smashed is destined to become a classic. A crucial book for any woman who has succumbed to oblivion through booze, or for anyone ready to face the more subtle repercussions of their own chronic over-drinking or of someone they love, Smashed is an eye-opening, wise, and utterly gripping achievement.
"Zailckas is unsparingly insightful and acutely aware of what drinking can and does do to girls....Her book is deeply moving, written in poetic, nuanced prose that never obscures the dangerous truths she seeks to reveal." (Publishers Weekly)

Self-Centered Navel Gazing
The author has quit drinking because alcohol became a problem for her, but she's not an alcoholic. She spends an inordinate amount of time describing the minute details of her life that fascinate her totally. Koren may not be much, but she is all that she thinks about. It amazes me that this book has sold as well as it has. Just another example from our narcissistic society.
