A Portrait of the Piss Artist As a Young Man
It was love at first taste for fifteen-year-old Tadhg Hickey when he drank a can of Scrumpy Jack on the night of his exam results. Straight away it provided a cure for that constant feeling of ‘something wrong, something not quite right’, a way of numbing anxiety and childhood trauma.
He realised he was extraordinarily good at drinking and energetically threw himself into a life of pubs, parties and staying pissed, while also managing to become a comedian. But alcohol had the last laugh … A Portrait of the Piss Artist as a Young Man shows us the often-hilarious lengths of self-deception an alcoholic will go to, the horrific consequences of addiction and the redemptive process of recovering from this deadly but ultimately treatable illness, and remaining sober.
A deeply touching memoir and with a side of self-help, Tadhg’s easy-going writing style belies his serious message – that each of us has the power to change our lives.
