A generation has passed since a physician first noticed that women who drank heavily while pregnant gave birth to underweight infants with telltale physical characteristics. Women whose own mothers enjoyed martinis while pregnant now lost sleep over a bowl of rum raisin ice cream. In "Message in a Bottle", Janet Golden charts the course of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome through the courts, media, medical establishment, and public imagination.
