"It's a mixologist's dream of literature-inspired drinks (and bar snacks) ...Handsomely illustrated, full of literary trivia, summaries and snappy patter." --Mystery Scene Magazine "Entertaining and beautifully designed ... it's a joy." --London Evening Standard "[S]ummaries of classic novels and their corresponding recipes are garnished with groan-worthy puns and sepia-toned illustrations. I toast to that!" --Palm Beach Post "It makes a fantastic gift, but you'll also want to pick up a copy for yourself." --DrinkSpirits.com "Another for the ever-swelling why-didn't-I-think-of-this file." --Houston Chronicle Bookish blog "Pun-tastic cocktail delights ... peruse it to find your book club's next read (and cocktail)." --Epicurious.com A small book, perfectly gift-sized, and a fun read. Bonus? A lot of the cocktails are built in a Collins glass so are truly a pour away from drinkable. And if you skipped any of the classics mentioned in this book, Federle's descriptions might just pique your curiosity enough to pick 'em up." --Sipsandshots.com Praise for Tim Federle's Better Nate Than Ever "Hilarious and heartwarming ... this book soars." --Publishers Weekly starred review) "Critics are raving about Nate." --CNN "[A]n inspired and inspiring journey." --New York Times Book Review (Editors' Choice) "Judy Blume as seen through a Stephen Sondheim lens." --Huffington Post Recommended by the ALA/Association for Library Service to Children (Summer Reading) A Junior Library Guild selection "[A] twinkling adventure tale for the musical theater set." --New York Times (front-page Arts feature) "An instant young adult classic." --The Advocate "[A] charming debut by a rising theater star." --Entertainment Weekly "Grade: A" --Cleveland Plain Dealer
