|About the Book|
Sybil struggles to stay sober via 12-step meetings full of trite slogans and overly friendly recovering alcoholics who are the last people she’d ever choose to be around. But Sybil isn’t your average woman: she’s actually a 7” tall doll with a bitter streak, striving for a sober future she’s not sure she cares enough to want. This photo-journal of recovery, using toys and dolls to depict AA meetings, drug taking, casual sex, personal debt, and suicide attempts is for the recovering alcoholic who didn’t stop being a self-indulgent, suicidal heathen the moment they set foot in a meeting and the recovering addict who never plans to spout religious maxims as evidence of personal growth. This irreverent, secular guide to recovery shows the most common self-defeating and sordid antics of addiction and early recovery—and through that lens shows that anyone can come out the other side of an addiction if they don’t take themselves too seriously.
