About the Book:
Slippery Steps isn’t your typical, hell and back recovery memoir. I never intended to quit drinking, rarely gave it a thought. I’d spent decades as a successful and productive journalist. I was a loving husband and father. My life worked, and worked well. Until it didn’t. Freedom from drinking has enriched my life in ways I’d never imagined. I’d been numbing myself to sleep, and sleepwalking my way through life. It’s never too late to wake up. This is a book about how the worst day of my life turned out to be one of the best.
About the Author: Before joining the journalism faculty of the University of Iowa, Don McLeese was an award-winning music journalist. He was a popular music critic at the Chicago Sun-Times and the Austin American-Statesman, senior editor at No Depression, and a frequent contributor to Rolling Stone magazine. His work has also appeared in publications including the New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post, The Oxford American, and Entertainment Weekly. He has written three previous books, including Dwight Yoakam, and A Thousand Miles from Nowhere.
