AS A YOUNG WOMAN, Tilly flees home for the hollow underworld of Nevada, looking for pure souls and finding nothing but bad habits. One day, after Tilly has spent nearly thirty years without a family, drinking herself to the brink of death, her niece Stella--who has been leading her own life of empty promise in New York City--arrives on the doorstep of Tilly's desert trailer. "The Gin Closet "unravels the strange and powerful intimacy that forms between them. With an uncanny ear for dialogue and a witty, unflinching candor about sex, love, and power, Leslie Jamison reminds us that no matter how unexpected its turns, the life we're given is all we have: the cruelties that unhinge us, the beauties that clarify us, the addictions that deform us, those fleeting possibilities of grace that fade as quickly as they come. "The Gin Closet "marks the debut of a stunning new talent in fiction.

"Devastating...astonishing...a story of love and ruin in the American West...it is a book that finds beauty in dysfunction- and, in doing so, gives us one of the truest and most devastating depictions of alcoholism to be had in some time...exquisite prose...droll...a tour de force." —Karen Brady, "Buffalo News"

Keenly felt...Redemption, finds Jamison, like love, is rarely pure or unambiguous.
