Descriere

Kristi Coulter inspired and incensed the internet when she wrote about what happened when she stopped drinking. Nothing Good Can Come from This is her debut audiobook—a frank, funny, and feminist essay collection by a keen-eyed observer no longer numbed into complacency.

When Kristi stopped drinking, she started noticing things. Like when you give up a debilitating habit, it leaves a space, one that can't easily be filled by mocktails or ice cream or sex or crafting. And when you cancel Rosé Season for yourself, you're left with just Summer, and that's when you notice that the women around you are tanked—that alcohol is the oil in the motors that keeps them purring when they could be making other kinds of noise.

In her sharp, incisive debut essay collection, Coulter reveals a portrait of a life in transition. By turns hilarious and heartrending, Nothing Good Can Come from This is perfect for anyone who has ever stood in the middle of a so-called perfect life and looked for an escape hatch.

  • (5/5)
    Essential cartography for navigating sober terrain. Luminous and deeply reassuring.
  • (4/5)
    The audiobook is pretty good, but doesn't include the essay "Enjoli" that is included in the book (and is absolutely fantastic - go read it). Overall, I enjoyed Kristi's writing and I think it speaks to both her ability to convey compelling story and also illuminate personal truths that reveal a lot about our society, corporate culture, alcoholism, feminism and the innate human desire for meaning.
  • (2/5)
    I like reading or listening to memoirs written about people are not like me. This lady is totally unlike me - white, probably beautiful, vehemently anti-abortion, doesn’t drink beer, and is wildly successful. She is also assaulted by margarita tents at all times. Apparently the patriarchy is constantly raping her by making wine available at all times. She is whiny and angry. I get it, but I am not particularly sympathetic.
