121: Cheever
... the book of short stories by Cheever. It isn't really the idea that the stories were set in the 40's that gets me, it's the idea that almost every story revolves around drinking. The whole idea of having servants and being an elevator operator didn't really click with me either. As a matter of fact, I found the book terribly written, very repetitive, and on top of all that very very bland. I can say however that the book had a lot of drinking in it, which I can relate to.

127: The Autobiographical Elements in the Works of Edgar Allan Poe
... be loved by me." Edgar Allan Poe had a genetic tendency toward alcohol. His cousin viewed alcohol as the "curse of the Poes'." Disregarding much warning, he began to drink as a young man. His drinking became worse when he attended the University of Virginia. His reason for drinking was to escape the drudgery and disappointment of his life. According to Thomas Poulter, Poe stated: I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been ... have periled life and reputation and reason.

... When sugars from the fruits or grains are combined with yeast and water, alcohol results. Alcohol is a drug and, like all drugs, it has an effect on a person’s body and mind.
