The single glass of wine with dinner. . .the cold beer on a hot day. . .the champagne flute raised in a toast. . . what I'd drink if Hunter S. Thompson wanted to get wasted with me. . .these are my fantasies lately. Too bad I've gone sober.

When Sacha Z. Scoblic was drinking, she was a rock star; the days were rough and the nights filled with laughter and blackouts. Then she gave it up. She had to. Here are her adventures in an utterly and maddeningly sober world. . .and how she discovered that nothing is as odd and fantastic as life without a drink in hand. . .

"Wildly entertaining. . .An unabashed account of getting clean and getting a life." --Steve Geng

Review:

"Scoblic's testament to life on the wagon is pertinent and raffish, marked by considerable candor and humor. A dryly witty, spirited memoir."
--Kirkus Reviews

"A gripping, inspiring tale that picks up where most sobriety memoirs leave off. ... This is a story for anyone trying to enact meaningful change in their lives." --Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, co-authors, The Nanny Diaries

"Hilarious and heartbreaking, Unwasted is a traveler's guide to the perilous, wondrous land of sobriety. Scoblic's scorched, sweet prose is the work of a writer at the top of her form." --Jennifer Finney Boylan, author of She's Not There

"As someone who's been drunk with Sacha Scoblic, I can attest that she's even smarter, sweeter and funnier when sober. This book is all of those things, one of the best memoirs I've read in a long time." --Tucker Carlson

"Sacha Z. Scoblic's often funny, always honest, and wholly unflinching look at her sobriety is not to be missed. As Sacha chooses her life, you'll choose this author: she's a revelation." --Megan Crane, author of I Love the 80s
