Description

In The Wine O’Clock Myth, Lotta takes an in-depth and eye-opening look at women’s drinking habits. Written through the lens of her own story and her work in the field of addiction and recovery. Lotta explores the privileged position alcohol holds in our society, the way the liquor industry targets women and the damaging ‘Wine Mum’ social media culture. She reveals the damage alcohol is causing to women: physically, emotionally and socially; and the potential reasons why so many women are drinking at harmful levels. Also she talks to a number of brave women who share detailed, intimate stories about their personal relationships with alcohol. Stories that are at times brutal and heartbreaking, but also inspiring and heart lifting. In conclusion The Wine O’Clock Myth is a powerful, important book that may well change the way you think about alcohol forever.

Author Biography

Lotta Dann has a degree in broadcasting and communications and a master’s degree in film, television and media studies. For a time she worked as a TV journalist, producer and director until she got sober aged 39, at which point her career changed as much as her interior life did. She now works largely from her home in the hills of Wellington, New Zealand, which she shares with her husband, three sons and a black Labrador. She runs busy social-media accounts promoting recovery, manages the highly successful online community Living Sober (livingsober.org.nz), and lately has been taking regular trips away to run day-long workshops on addiction and recovery. The Wine O’Clock Myth is her third book.
