    Story
    (110)

    Torn between the stirring example of his mother and the lurid romance of the bar, J.R. tried to forge a self somewhere in the center. But when it was time for J.R. to leave home, the bar became an increasingly seductive sanctuary, a place to return and regroup during his picaresque journeys. Time and again, the bar offered shelter from failure, rejection, heartbreak, and eventually from reality.

    Jim E says: "A Good Deal and a Good Deal More"
    "Loved it."

    Would you listen to The Tender Bar again? Why?

    Yes - I love JR Moehringer's writing. Didn't realize before I listened to this book that he co-wrote Andre Agassi's memoir, which I also enjoyed so much.


    What other book might you compare The Tender Bar to and why?

    I just love memoirs - they comprise 90% of the books I read and listen to. This book is among my favorites. I listened to Patti Smith's "Just Kids" just previous to this one and I thought they were both so fantastic.


    Have you listened to any of J.R. Moehringer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No - but he's great. I often look for books that are read by the author - makes such a difference.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    OMG - I laughed and cried. I just loved the descriptions of the men at the bar and the loving portrayal of Moehringer's relationship to his mom. Very very touching, so thoughtful and sometimes hilariously funny.


    Any additional comments?

    I give this one my highest recommendation.
