I loved The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls for the story of how an extraordinary person overcomes an alcoholic family. Lit: A Memoir by Mary Carr is a good one from the alcoholic's perspective. A Drinking Life by Pete Hamill is a great read too. Caroline Knapp's Drinking: A Love Story is pretty powerful stuff. Elizabeth Wurtzel, who wrote Prozac Nation, also wrote about her drug addiction in More, Now, Again.
