About this item
When published, September Remember was a best seller, and the first known novel that put AA into literary consciousness. It’s been out of print now for over 60 years.
The book is full of language and prejudices that are reflective of its time. That was the time of America between the two world wars: more than twenty years before Martin Luther King’s I Have a Dream” speech, years before women made it out of the kitchen into the living room, and years before new immigrants were only recognizable by the derogatory terms used to describe them. In that way, September Remember can be treated as a historical document that mentions Alcoholics Anonymous, but it is much more than that: its mythology is essentially AA’s, a story of rebirth and redemption.
