High Spirits: A Round of Drinking Stories

Winner, “Best Anthology” at the Saboteur Awards 2019


Drinking stories are told by drunks, or about drunks; they are told in pubs, or set in pubs. They are stories where people drink, and stories which somehow induce a sense of drunkenness in readers and listeners. Anton Chekhov may or may not have drunkenly compared the experience of reading a short story to downing a shot of vodka, and F. Scott Fitzgerald claimed that a good short story could “be written on a bottle.” Here is a collection of contemporary short stories written on and about bottles – stories about the comedies, tragedies, pleasures, pains and horrors of alcohol – all of which can be downed like (and perhaps with) a glass of vodka.


‘An intoxicating cocktail of stories. Drink deep, but be warned: there is darkness in the cup.’  Will Buckingham
