by | Read by Christopher Lane

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1992

In this memoir, the alcohol-saturated author and artist Barnaby Conrad, once respected in the literary, art, and entertainment worlds, tells of his degeneration to alcoholism and his late-life attempt to clean up, with the help of the Betty Ford Clinic. Conrad is a skilled writer, and Christopher Lane conveys the details of his sophisticated professional and social lives, rife with authors, artists, and actors. We hear the humor, pathos, and gradual triumph in Lane’s voice as he carries out his sobering journey to good physical and mental health. Conrad’s attempt to confront the truth of his experience and provide a cautionary tale succeeds in this production. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
