Kerry Cohen Presents...

Lush: A Memoir

in conversation with Jillian Lauren

How much wine is too much wine? Loose Girl author Kerry Cohen explores the nature of addiction and recovery through her own midlife love affair with wine. When Kerry reached her early forties, she woke up one day and realized she had a drinking problem.

Yes, she could get up on time, take her kids to school, meet with clients all day, make dinner, and chat with friends, but through it all, Kerry was waiting for her five o’clock glass of wine. Maybe two glasses. Maybe a bottle. Just enough to blur the edges of her monotonous life.

"Cohen's book...offers a sharp-eyed look at what it means to be a midlife female unable to cope with either personal demons or the heavy external social pressures placed on women. "
