Amabookabooka chat to Sam Cowen about her memoir From Whiskey to Water
Amabookabooka, the quirky podcast devoted to interviewing local authors about their work, made its Daily Maverick debut recently.
In this episode, producers Jonathan Ancer and Dan Dewes chat to Sam Cowen, author of From Whiskey to Water.
Cowen’s 2016 memoir recounts her experiences of alcoholism – some funny, some terrifying – and how she overcame her dependency by replacing whiskey and wine with the source of life: water.
From the powerful effect that braving the icy Atlantic Ocean had on her to the process of writing about her past – Cowen, Ancer and Dewes cover it all.
