Reviews
"Life is raw in Leslie Jamison's astonishing first novel, 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...The Gin Closet is nothing short of a tour de force."
--Buffalo News

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