Hemingway & Bailey’s Bartending Guide to Great American Writers

hbBartendingguide.jpgAuthor Mark Bailey and illustrator Edward Hemingway (a grandson of the man himself), collaborated on this clever book that explores the drinking habits of some of America’s greatest writers. The book features a host of classic writers and the cokctail that they have become synonymous with their name. Such lumineries as Hemingway (cocktail: Mojito), Faulkner (cocktail: Mint Julep) and F. Scott Fitzgerald (cocktail: Gin Rickey).

This book is more than a bartending guide, with drinking related excerpts and quotes from the writings of famous American writers and wonderfully illustrated, this is a necessary addition to any cocktail of literary fans’ book collection.
