Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This visually rich journey into an alluring subculture takes an intimate look into the contemporary world of absinthe. With color reproductions of lithographs, posters, postcards, cartoons, antiques, and tools of the absinthe drinker, Absinthe explains the history, culture, and mystique of the drink known as the Green Fairy.

Book News Annotation:

Tucson-based family psychotherapist Wittels is a leading vendor of absinthe antiques in the US, and Hermesch is a social worker in Boston. They update their popular account of the infamous drink to keep up with its revival around the world after having been banned for many years in many countries. They discuss its history, famous imbibers, collectibles of course, and the current green fairy scene. Also included are reviews of current products and recipes for fancy drinks. Editor Breaux is a chemist and specialist in the chemical makeup of absinthe. No date is cited for the first edition. Distributed by Consortium Book Sales & Distribution.
