Summary "When Kerry Cohen reached her early forties, she woke up one day and realized she had a drinking problem--just enough to blur the edges of her life that had become a monotony of working, carpooling the kids to school, and everyday distractions. What she also realized was that she wasn't the only one. Lush examines Kerry's struggle with alcohol, a struggle that a rising number of middle-aged women are facing today."--Back cover.
