Peter  Richter - On Drinking


In support of a self-assured enjoyment of life

There is so much to drink – and so little without alcohol! A look in any bar or at the menu of a reasonably good restaurant will show you one thing: you have to have very good reasons to get stuck with the mournful threesome consisting of water, coke and apple spritzer. Our attitude to drinking is inconsistent. On the one hand, you can't warn about it loudly enough, but on the other hand you are always being offered a glass of something. If you drink you have a problem; if you don't drink, you have an even bigger problem. In his latest book, Peter Richter has both amusingly and wisely taken a look at a culture swimming in intoxicating drinks. In a society increasingly critical of stimulants and luxury foods, he has come out in support of a self-assured enjoyment of life – without letting the kick be taken away.
