For my money, there hasn't been a work about alcohol abuse that feels this humble and forthright since Caroline Knapp's Drinking. It isn't surprising how compulsively readable and relatable this is, given Hepola is the personal essays editor at Salon, but it is her ability to steer clear of navel-gazing and address past transgressions frankly without sensationalizing them that makes Blackout so inspiring.
