Malogamand
I can't say enough how much I enjoyed this collection. The subject matter is a dark and depressing ride, but the language and attitude is sheer poetry. Jeffrey Bernard maintained a self-deprecating sense of humor throughout. He owned his shortcomings and failings and was brutally honest about them. I wish he'd written more. It reminds me of a comment made about Keith Richards being "elegantly wasted".
