Requirements: .ePUB reader, 253KB
Overview: Acclaimed author Frank Moorhouse considers the world’s most elegant and mysterious cocktail whilst also reflecting on his life. At once a celebration of the most elegant, arcane and mysterious cocktail of them all – the martini – and a lyrical memoir of friendship and love won and lost, Martini: A Memoir is Frank Moorhouse at his melancholy and hilarious best. As he muses on the aesthetics of martini lore – olive or twist, shaken or stirred, Dorothy Parker or James Bond? – and the nature of drinking, Moorhouse reflects on the role of the martini in his own life in prose as dry and intoxicating as the martini itself. With an Afterword.
