    The Bartender' s Tale stars Tom Harry and his 12-year-old son, Rusty, who live alone and run a bar in a small Montana town in the early 1960s. Their lives are upended when Proxy, a woman from Tom's past, and her beatnik daughter, Francine, breeze into town. Is Francine, as Proxy claims, the unsuspected legacy of her and Tom’s past? Without a doubt she is an unsettling gust of the future, upending every certainty in Rusty’s life and generating a mist of passion and pretense that seems to obscure everyone’s vision but his own.

    What would have made The Bartender's Tale better?

    A better editor - cut adverbs!


    What was most disappointing about Ivan Doig’s story?

    I wanted to know more about why Dad was the best bartender in the world and what's up with Russell's maternal side...if I could continue, maybe I'd find out. But, I am so adverbally assaulted by this book, I cannot bear another minute of tortuously listening.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I wish it was more that a funny memoir. I really want to know who Tina really is and what makes her tick. I just didn't get that.
