SRN Recording: Nancy Carr / Last Call: A Memoir


An avid reader of memoirs, and non-fiction, Nancy began writing short stories and essays in her free time a few years ago. Inspired by writers she admired for their honesty and grit—Joyce Maynard, Augusten Burroughs, Anne Lamott and Kelly Corrigan—Nancy started writing more and more and by early 2005 had compiled a 250 page manuscript for her own memoir, Last Call: A Memoir.

On her blog, also Last Call, she blogs about recovery, alcoholism, addiction, family, love and her four-legged child, Lucy. Nancy enjoys a full-time career (one that pays her bills) in another industry, while she and her super-cool husband reside in sunny Naples, Florida where they frolic on the beach with Lucy and don’t take anything for granted. No complaints.

Nancy’s work has appeared on The Fix, The Real Edition, XO Jane and Ravishly, as well as numerous recovery and addiction websites and blogs. Including on this site right here.
