Recommended as a holiday gift for wine lovers by The Mail Tribune !
"This delightful hard-cover volume is light as the bubbles in Crémant de Bourgogne, bright with a wordsmith's insights and generously flavored with humor. One-page descriptions of what wine, brew, or cocktail goes best with a renowned book (they range from Heart of Darkness /Petite Syrah to A Confederacy of Dunces /Budweiser) are as un-put-downable as potato chips."

Want to know what to drink with all your favorite books?

A bubbly, boozy French 75 with The Great Gatsby . A luscious Chocolatini with Bridget Jones's Diary . Old vine California Zinfandel with The Grapes of Wrath . Lager (by the pitcher, from your local dive) with Fight Club . Refreshing citrus shandy with Their Eyes Were Watching God . And don't you dare open Dracula without a Bloody Mary near at hand!

Now book lovers everywhere can raise the perfect toast to Shakespeare, Austen, Kerouac, Woolf, and more. With drink pairing recommendations for nearly 200 classic and contemporary works of fiction, including non-alcoholic pairings for kids and young adult books, Literary Libations is a necessary addition to bookshelves and bar tops everywhere.
