    • Yes! The best of the bunch is What Fresh Hell Is This? by Marion Meade. I read three, and the others really gloss over most of the problems in her life–with men, alcohol. Meade actually did a whole lot of research and unearthed some fascinating stuff about all of them. Let me know if you find it and read it!
