NINETY DAYS: A MEMOIR OF RECOVERY

APRIL 2012 HARDCOVER

Ninety Days: A Memoir of Recovery
Bill Clegg
978-0-316-12252-8, $24.99

A suspenseful account of an addict’s journey to recovery, by a writer “as intoxicated by language as he was by crack.” (A.L. Kennedy)

The goal is 90. Just 90 clean and sober days to loosen the hold of the addiction that caused Bill Clegg to lose everything. With 73 days in rehab behind him he returns to New York and attends two or three meetings each day. It is in these refuges that he befriends essential allies, including a seemingly unshakeable veteran of sobriety named Asa, and Polly, who struggles daily with her own cycle of recovery and relapse.

At first, the support is not enough: Clegg relapses for the first time with only three days left. Written with uncompromised immediacy, Ninety Days begins where Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man ends—and tells the wrenching story of Clegg’s battle to reclaim his life. As any recovering addict knows, hitting rock bottom is just the beginning.

About the author: Bill Clegg is a literary agent in New York. He is also the author of Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man.

Publicity tour: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle.
