Nobody Likes a Quitter (and Other Reasons to Avoid Rehab)
The Loaded Life of an Outlaw Booze Writer
By (author) Dan Dunn
Nobody Likes a Quitter (and Other Reasons to Avoid Rehab) by Dan Dunn
Book DescriptionA lot of people drink, but few do it for a living. Among those who do, nobody does it better, or worse, than Dan Dunn. One part infotainment, two parts desperate cry for help, Nobody Likes a Quitter chronicles Dunn's rise from Philly street kid to Aspen ski bum to lofty status as one of the world's most widely read wine and spirits writers. Along the way, readers learn what to drink, how to drink it, and why they should drink it while meeting the motley crew that shares Dunn's sauce-soaked ways: the degenerate roommate "Bottomfeeder," a string of women who populate Dunn's nights, a host of the famous and fabulously drunk, even the occasional appearance by Dunn's mentor, the great Hunter S. Thompson. A mosh-up of fact and well-oiled flights of fancy, Dunn's riotously funny story is destined to become the Bible of the 21st-Century Drinking Class. Along with hilarious yarns involving celebrities, hapless Hollywood agents and executives, porn-star neighbors, and expensive liquor company events, this bawdy barroom confession contains cocktail recipes, product reviews, and wine and liquor history, as well as profiles of some of the giants of the spirits industry.
