"This book grew out of a simple observation: writers like to drink." Hemingway & Bailey's Bartending Guide to Great American Writers by Edward Hemingway (illustrator) and Mark Bailey (author). OK, I admit that this was an impulse purchase made as I was poking around Powell's the other day. It does not show up on any of my Must Read lists. But the caricature illustrations caught my eye, and books and cocktails are my favorite things, so home with me it came. I plan to sit in my new library some evening very soon, with a bourbon soda, and enjoy this little book straight through.
