Sam Cowen's no-holds-barred memoir and latest offering, From Whiskey to Water is now the number one Non-fiction title in South Africa.

Having kept her alcohol addiction well away from the public eye for over 14 years, in this tell-all tale Sam finds the courage to talk about her struggle with her addiction to whiskey, food and finally to a passion that saved her life – marathon swimming. Told in her characteristically hilarious dead-pan style, this is one of the bravest books you’ll read this year.

From Whiskey to Water was published by MFBooks Joburg, a Jacana Media imprint.
