A Sidecar Named Desire: Great Writers and the Booze That Stirred Them

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

A rollicking illustrated history of alcohol and its literary imbibers, from Jane Austen's beer brewing to James Joyce's passion for Guinness to E.B. White's cure for writers' block--a dry martini--by celebrated illustrator Greg Clarke and award-winning editor/art director Monte Beauchamp.

"The tools that I need for my trade are simply pen, paper, food, tobacco, and a little whiskey."

--William Faulkner

"I keep a dictionary, a Bible, a deck of cards and a bottle of sherry in the room."

--Maya Angelou

"A writer who drinks carefully is probably a better writer."

--Stephen King

Throughout history, there has been no greater catalyst for creativity among writers, so they claim, than a good, stiff drink. In this graphic volume, the authors take us on an unforgettable literary bar crawl, packed with historical factoids, anecdotes, booze trivia, and fascinating detours into the lives of our favorite writers, along with literary-themed cocktail recipes such as Ernest Hemingway's Death in the Afternoon and Philip Larkin's Gin and Tonic set to verse.

For the literary-minded drinker, whether wine, gin, vodka, beer, whiskey, or tequila is your elixir of choice, A Sidecar Named Desire will whet your appetite. Bottoms up
