Amy Dresner is a journalist, author, and former comedian as well as a recovering addict and alcoholic. She has been a columnist for the addiction/recovery magazine theFix.com since 2012 and has freelanced for Addiction.com, Psychology Today, Vice and many other publications. Her first book, “My Fair Junkie: A Memoir of Getting Dirty and Staying Clean,” was published by Hachette in 2017 to rave reviews from critics and readers alike. Elle magazine compared Dresner’s darkly comic memoir to Carrie Fisher’s “Postcards from the Edge” and Mary Karr’s “Lit,” calling Dresner’s book “one for the ages.” Dresner has appeared on the television show The Doctors and on numerous radio shows and podcasts, including Dr. Drew, Dopey and Rich Roll. She does regular speaking engagements around the U.S. and Canada. Her book is currently in development for a TV series.
“Full Disclosure: Amy Dresner is the prodigal daughter of one of my oldest and dearest friends. And Full Disclosure would be an acceptable alternate title for My Fair Junkie, her chronicle of her journey to hell and back, a round trip she’s made way too many times. Because Amy is who she is, the story she tells is hysterically funny at one moment and utterly harrowing the next—and often manages to be both those things at once.”Lawrence Block, award winning crime-writer, author of “The Sins of the Fathers” and more books and short stories than I can name.
