I Will Be Complete by Glen David Gold. It's the new memoir by the author of Carter Beats the Devil (NYT best seller from a number of years ago). Glen is a fellow wine lover who introduced me to Cellartracker, which in turn led me here. 

I love Glen's writing. Here's a recent sample from the New York Times a few weeks ago:

Read this book. No really, read this book. Glen's story is a jaw-dropper. Just one example: at age 12 his mother disappeared across the country and left him on his own for a "day or two" which turned into months. As compelling as the story is, it's the writing that will grab you: beautifully spare and unsentimental, but also both heartbreaking and hilarious. A phenomenal achievement.
