40 Top40BookClubReadsNON-FICTION Wasted: A Story of Alcohol, Grief and a Death in Brisbane Elspeth Muir In 2009, Elspeth Muir’s younger brother jumped from the Story Bridge while on a night out celebrating the end of his university exams. When Alexander’s body was pulled from the water three days later, his blood- alcohol content was almost .25. He had just turned 21. Muir’s brother’s story is the basis for her book, which looks at Australia’s drinking culture. It also includes a personal story about her relationship with alcohol, while sharing facts and figures – making the book part memoir and part journalism. It is a heartbreaking and eye-opening read.
