Double Double is a unique and honest dual memoir of alcoholism, a disease that affects nearly forty-five million Americans each year. People who suffer from alcoholism, as well as their families and friends, know that while it is possible to get sober—there is no one “right” way to do this. Now, award-winning mystery writer Martha Grimes and her son, Ken Grimes, offer two points of view on their struggles with alcoholism. In alternating chapters, they share their stories—stories of drinking, recovery, relapse, friendship, travel, work, success, and failure.

Double Double is an intensely personal, candid, and illuminating book, filled with insights, humor, a little self-deprecation, and a lot of self-evaluation.

Quotes & Awards

  • Double Double could have been titled Double-Barreled—it hits like a .12 gauge sawed-off at close range. The brutal illumination of a dual descent into alcoholism is also a penetrating insight: the lives of a mother and son run.”

    Andrew Vachss, New York Times bestselling author of That’s How I Roll and Blackjack

  • “They highlight how individual the struggle is; each person combats his or her demons in a specific way.”

    Library Journal
