The Tender Bar
- A Memoir
- By: J.R. Moehringer
- Narrated by: J.R. Moehringer
- Length: 5 hrs and 22 mins
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.

Like having a beer with an old friend
This book was just a joy to listen to. We listened while we were painting our house, and it was like listening to a friend tell us a story.
