Chicago Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg joins Justin to talk about his fascinating new book, “Out of the Wreck I Rise: A Literary Companion to Recovery.” Neil discusses what he was trying to accomplish by writing this book, the connection between drinking and writing, the romanticizing of alcohol in literature, his own experiences with alcoholism and his relationship with the written word and how it helps him with his recovery. Neil also reads a few quotes from the book. Great stuff.
