Booze Books: The Modern Drunkard

Our idols over at Modern Drunkard Magazine are at it again, and this time they've moved away from their monthly format into something more permanent. That's right, Frank Kelly Rich, the genius behind Modern Drunkard Magazine, has written a book that will touch you...or at least do shots with your inner wino.

The Modern Drunkard - PaperbackBook Description of The Modern Drunkard from Amazon.com:

"Attempting to deconstruct America's joyless obsession with sobriety, The Modern Drunkard offers today's befuddled drinkers a comprehensive and instructive manual on how to drink-and how to do it well. Through articles, anecdotes, cartoons, and illustrations, Frank Kelly Rich campaigns to revive the lost art of tippling and taps a deep vein of boozy lore and legend through the ages, uncovering etiquette and expertise from some of history's greatest guzzlers."

Until recently our only exposure to the drunkard was through Modern Drunkard online, but we've just gotten our hands on the our first hard copy and it lives up to our every expectation. Plus, the title on the front cover got some funny glances while we read it on the bus, and there was more than enough booze and cheesecake in its pages to last a half-hour ride. Drunkards of the world unite, or as they say on the Drunkard site, "Say it Loud, Say it Plowed!"

We expect the same magic from the book when it's released on October 25. The book retails for $14.00, but you can get it at Amazon for closer to $11. Pre-order your copy of the The Modern Drunkardat Amazon.com.

An historic drunk...

"On the House: The Bizarre Killing of Michael Malloy" hits the shelves Oct. 4. It's the true story of a Depression-era drunk who thwarted numerous attempts on his life. All except the last one, that is. The author's web site is www.simon-read.com. Cheers.
