Have you ever wondered what Jack Kerouac ordered from his regular corner at the White Horse Tavern? Have you dreamed of sharing gin martinis with Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton after poetry class? Maybe a mojito--a real one, like they serve at La Bodeguita del Medio in Havana--is all you need to summon the mesmerizing power of Hemingway's prose. What better way to channel the wit of Dorothy Parker than through a whiskey sour? Writer's block? Harness the brilliant musings of Truman Capote with a screwdriver--or, "my orange drink," as he called it.

With 100 spirited and iconic drink recipes, accompanied by original hand-drawn illustrations throughout, How to Drink Like a Writer is sure to inspire, invoke, and inebriate, whether you are courting the muse, or nursing a hangover. Sure, becoming a famous author takes dedication, innate talent, and sometimes nepotism. But it also takes vodka, gin, tequila, and whiskey.
