Drinking with George: A Barstool Professional's Guide to Beer

George Wendt, Author, Jonathan Grotenstein, With Simon Spotlight Entertainment $24.99 (225p) ISBN 978-1-4391-4958-4
Actor Wendt is recognized world-wide for his role as Cheers barfly Norm Peterson. In this memoir, Wendt finds plenty of common ground with his televised alter ego, not just in his keen love for beer, but in a talent for funny, affectionate storytelling. Deftly weaving personal anecdote with beer lore, Wendt reminisces on a career built on his work playing a lush, and a personal life also largely defined by beer. Hysterical from start to finish, Wendt is also measured, humble and genuine. Stories of his time at Second City and his relationships with Woody Harrelson, Chris Farley, Farrah Fawcett and others are a goldmine for comedy fans. Wendt never strays far from his most trusted costar, beer, and aficionados will be impressed by his extensive, loving collection of trivia and history. Fans of the man, the myth, or the malt beverage will drink it up.
