Simultaneously sobering and intoxicating, Note Found in a Bottle is a touching memoir that also offers a fascinating look at America's drinking habits during the past few decades. Without preaching or moralizing, Cheever describes her life as a drinker, analyzing the part that alcoholism played in her marriages, her friendships, and her career. Beginning with the memory of being taught to make a martini at the age of six by her grandmother, Cheever uses anecdote to illuminate the various roles that alcohol plays in American culture: as a social lubricant, as an emotional anesthetic, and as a status symbol. Cheever demonstrates the insidious progression of her own addiction to alcohol, and shares with us her own struggle to gain control of her life.
