The Tender Bar

The Tender Bar
by J.R. Moehringer [Compact Disc B M719]

Moehringer's memoir of growing up fatherless in his grandparent's chaotic household under the tutelage of his bartender uncle Charlie and the regulars of Long Island's Publicans bar. Moeringer's view of his mentors- seen through both the eyes of youth and experience- are lovingly brought to life, each individual's character carefully sketched to reveal both their heroic attributes and their fatal flaws. -- recommended by Vicki W. - Bennett Martin Public Library
