A Shirt Full of Puke

June 27, 2009

“Alcohol whipped me. Alcohol and I had many, many marvelous times together. We laughed, we talked, we danced at the party together; then one day I woke up and the band had gone home and I was lying in the broken glass with a shirt full of puke and I said, ‘Hey, man, the ball game’s up.'”
Harry Crews, quoted in Getting Naked with Harry Crews (edited by Erik Bledsoe, University of Florida Press, 1999)
