John Berryman's semi-autobiographical novel of alcoholism
First UK edition, first impression hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13.5cm, 254pp.
A thinly-veiled autobiographical novel, Recovery follows Dr. Alan Severance through his emotional journey of Freudian group analysis where he confesses his alcoholism, humiliations, defeats, and delusions in an attempt to purge himself and achieve normality.
The book is in good condition and is in strong readable condition. The dustwrapper is tatty with heavy scuffing to all edges but is now within a protective sleeve.
