Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Michael Turner's controversial and groundbreaking novel is a remarkable faux memoir about the unmaking of a notorious underground film. He discloses his experience befriending Monika Herendy, a celebrated Hungarian pornographer looking to make her first "legitimate" film. Turner's resulting screenplay, American Whiskey Bar takes place entirely in a cocktail bar, focussing on the intensely personal conversations of those gathered them. American Whiskey Bar the book is in fact several books in one: the wistful memoirs of an artist co-opted by greed; a biting satire of the movie industry; and American Whiskey Bar the screenplay, a story of sex, violence, lies, ambition racism, dreams, and regret.<P>American Whiskey Bar was named one of the best books of the year in Canada by The Globe & Mail, Toronto Star, and Quill & Quire.
