I just have to say that this is a delightful little book. Each chapter is about an author, with a drink inspired by that author, quotes by the author and added recommendations for further reading. Oh yes, I can not forget that the book also includes recipes to make these special drinks. From such authors as Willa A. Cather, Kate Chopin, Gail Godwin and many many more, we learn a bit about the author and some of their works. With great recommendations and wonderful pictures of featured drinks, makes me want to try them!... This little book is definitely a keeper for the book lover and drink afficianado!!
