Sherry & Narcotics is an outstanding debut novel by author, Nina- Marie Gardner.
Intelligently written with not one word wasted, Gardner has created a fictionalized version of her own experiences with addiction, a love affair gone wrong with a well known writer, and feeling purposeless in a foreign country.
Gardner describes her writing as "chic-lit noir"; the anti-thesis to the popular women's fiction genre of perfect women shopping for the perfect handbag and living perfectly ever after.
Underneath the driving plot is an unflinching view of alcoholism and living life carelessly on a precipice of failure.
