    Epub Elspeth Muir #180; Wasted PDFEPUB #9734; #180; wasted kindle, Wasted ePUBOne recent evening while walking home after dinner and drinks with some colleagues I came across a young man who was passed out facedown on a thin strip of grass beside a busy street in inner city Brisbane Removing my earphones I greeted him and asked if he needed help or if I could call him a taxi On waking from his slumber he slurred that he was fine and began making a call on his phone Satisfied he was semi coherent I bid him farewell and good luck By the time I had walked to the corner and looked back the young man was lying facedown once againI thought about him a lot while reading Elspeth Muir’s 'Wasted' a book whose pages are

    Epub Elspeth Muir #180; Wasted PDFEPUB #9734; #180; wasted kindle, Wasted ePUBThe book is a part memoir part investigation into the impact of alcohol in Australia It stemmed from the tragic death of the author's 21 year old brother and traces his and her alcoholic antics There is a bit about the comparison with the drinking habits in South America a bit about sexual assaults schoolies and the cowardly one punch killings There was little about domestic violence health issues caused by excessive drinking It is a very personnel story but it could have been powerful if it was told solely as a personnel story I just felt the investigative study was incomplete
