About the Author

Kaylie Jones is the author of Celeste Ascending, As Soon as It Rains, and A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries, which was made into a film starring Kris Kristofferson and Barbara Hershey.


The daughter of From Here to Eternity author James Jones, Kaylie Jones rubbed shoulders as a child with Truman Capote and Norman Mailer. Here, she narrates her privileged childhood in Paris and the Hamptons, NY. A love of writing was passed down from her father and a love of alcohol from her charming but emotionally abusive mother. Kaylie's adult battle to hide her drinking from bosses, friends, and family will especially move readers with hauntingly dramatic details. Her neutraility regarding her parents' flaws makes this book stand out among child-of-celebrity memoirs. Readalike: Carrie Fisher's Wishful Drinking.-Elizabeth Brinkley, Granite Falls, WA Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

"Brilliant, touching.... Absolutely addictive, this story of struggle and triumph is a joy to read, thanks to Jones's gift for handling dark material with humor and grace.... a treasure for fans of literature and literary memoirs, as well as anyone who's coped with alcoholics in the family."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
