    Agreed. It was one terrific and engaging memoir, and definitely belongs on this site, since the whole point of the book is that he finally grew up and became a man.

    Reading “The Tender Bar,” I realized how far I had to go as a memoirist. I recommend this book every time the topic of books arises in conversation.

  3. Hello, my name is Márcio and I’m from Bazil, forgive my poor English. I read “The Tender Bar” and I was thrilled with the story of JR. I recommend this book for several reasons, but one in particular: just as the gulls the Greek restaurant, which taught the JR persistence, this wonderful author has taught me more willing to fight for life. Thanks JR for telling me your story!
