Koren Zailckas, "Fury: True Tales of A Good Girl Gone Ballistic"

We are so excited to be working with M.A.D.E. and in partnership with the Scranton Library for their Community Book Discussion!

Picking up where Smashed left off, Koren Zailckas paints a tumultuous picture of what life and self-image are found to be when alcohol is no longer there to numb the world and mind. Seeking liberation from societal prescriptions and stepping out from behind façades, this poignant memoir shares a deeply personal tale on which young women can identify, learn, and grow.

 The author of the New York Times bestseller Smashed "puts a voice to a generation with their own issues with rage" (San Francisco Book Review)

Written when she was just twenty-three, Koren Zailckas's memoir Smashed: Story of a Drunken Girlhood became an iconic, bestselling account of her years as a teenaged blackout binge drinker. Fury picks up where Smashed left off, revealing the toxic legacy of Koren's sobriety. Without alcohol to blur her perspective, Koren finds that her good-girl personality is nothing more than a shroud for unacknowledged anger with the potential to wreak havoc on her life. A sophisticated and deeply personal chronicle, Fury hits a cultural nerve. Blazing a trail toward a healthy, empowered identity, Zailckas will astonish and free a generation of young women.
