Devin Devine’s debut collection Drinking to Sainthood is an unwavering portrayal of addiction, both the funeral and the wake. Drinking to Sainthood confronts the narrative of two addicts careening into love, the crumbling of a whiskey-brined marriage, and ultimately the loss of Devine's estranged husband to suicide. This collection is a labyrinth to Devine’s sobriety, from journal entry to the hospital stay. This book is a biblical reconciliation of grief, a willingness to offer mercy, and an invocation to forgive oneself. Cover by Baby Boudwin.
Praise for Drinking to Sainthood
"Drinking to Sainthood is a lifeline for those of us that have survived rock bottom and homage to those that didn't. A profound and cautious study in mourning, self preservation, and the lengths our hearts will take us to love our kin and ourselves, no matter the cost."
-Desireé Dallagiacomo, author of SINK
