From Aristophanes' attraction to wine, to Dostoevsky's breakfast of grain vodka and brown bread, to Joan Didion's fondness for gin, stories abound of how booze has fueled and inspired our literary icons.In this graphic volume, cartoonist Greg Clarke and comics anthologist Monte Beauchamp take us on an unforgettable literary bar crawl. A Sidecar Named Desire is packed with historical factoids, anecdotes, booze trivia, and fascinating detours into the lives of our most storied literary personalities--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!
