Wasted: A Story of Alcohol, Grief and a Death in Brisbane by Elspeth Muir

In 2009 Elspeth Muir's youngest brother, Alexander, finished his last university exam and went out with some mates on the town. Later that night he wandered to the Story Bridge. He put his phone, wallet, T-shirt and thongs on the walkway, climbed over the railing, and jumped thirty metres into the Brisbane River below.

Three days passed before police divers pulled his body out of the water. When Alexander had drowned, his blood-alcohol reading was almost five times the legal limit for driving.

Why do some of us drink so much, and what happens when we do? Fewer young Australians are drinking heavily, but the rates of alcohol abuse and associated problems-from blackouts to sexual assaults and one-punch killings-are undiminished.

Intimate and beautifully told, Wasted illuminates the sorrows, and the joys, of drinking. To view this DRM protected ebook on your desktop or laptop you will need to have Adobe Digital Editions installed.
