Sacha Z. Scoblic’s Lush Sobriety

    Listen

    Hour 2

    If you’re in recovery, kidnapped by terrorists and faced with a drink menacingly put to your lips, what do you do? That’s one of the relapse fantasies our guest SACHA Z. SCOBLIC has had. After about ten years of hard drinking, she quit the bottle and has written a book about her view of the world in the first several years of sobriety. Scoblic was senior editor at Reader’s Digest, and is now an editor at The Aspen Institute and at The New Republic. Her memoir is Unwasted: My Lush Sobriety.
