From the opening paragraphs of Double Double:"We were sitting in a coffee shop talking, looking at the view of downtown Charlottesville, Virginia. This was ten years ago, and we had both been off alcohol for more than a decade. We were disagreeing about the best way to stay sober, when my mother said, "I think we should write a book about alcoholism." I sat back. 'We?' 'Both of us. Two points of view.' "To the final page of this dual memoir, Martha and Ken Grimes keep the reader entertained and informed. Double Double is a unique and honest, dual memoir of alcoholism, a disease that affects nearly 45 million Americans each year.

In alternating chapters, they share their stories--stories of drinking, recovery, relapse, friendship, travel, work, success and failure.
