One part celebration, one part history, two parts manifesto, Bernard DeVoto's The Hour is a comic and unequivocal treatise on how and why we drink - properly. The Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award - winning author turns his shrewd wit on the spirits and attitudes that cause his stomach to turn and his eyes to roll (Warning: this book is NOT for rum drinkers). DeVoto instructs his readers on how to drink like gentlemen and sheds new light on the simple joys of the cocktail hour. With an introduction by Daniel Handler.

    " DeVoto's language and devout seriousness to a proper cocktail is sure to put a smile on your face. He is unintentionally hilarious with his severe pronouncements and character assassinations for the more prosaic of drink requests. A fun, informative read. "

    " This is the one I read, not the other, although it is on my list to read. This is the one in which he's trying to be Thurber, and it's dated. "
