"Who better to illustrate a belly-up-to-the-bar guide to American writers than Papa Hemingway's grandson? Edward Hemingway's charming caricatures of cocktail-loving writers—from his own grandpapa to Dorothy Parker to Hunter S. Thompson—add the fizz to Hemingway & Bailey's Bartending Guide to Great American Writers
. Writer Mark Bailey spices things up with literary drinking anecdotes that recall the glass-clinking glory days of Parisian cafes and Algonquin Round Tables."
“A wittily illustrated rogue’s gallery of literary lushes, with cocktail recipes to let you drink in their footsteps."
"You'll be convinced that a writer's soul resides not in the heart or mind, but in the liver."

"Hemingway and Bailey's Bartending Guide to Great American Writers
is a bracing cocktail of wit, anecdote, and practical knowledge. All your favorite literary drinkers are here along with their favorite drinks. I'm keeping one copy by the bed and one by the bar. Read responsibly—no more than three or at most four pages a night." —Jay McInerney
