The Tender Bar

Wonderful photograph for a memoir of someone who essentially grew up in a bar. I love that the chairs on the tables are all up and that the bar is close to closing (or opening?) and that the kid is still there.

The type is a little too eye-chartish for me, but this jacket is still pretty cool.

I agree. I like the kid peering over the bar like that, emphasizing his tender age.

All the main elements are jammed into the edges, leaving a big empty blah in the middle. This cover is interesting because it is quirky, but that's about all it is. I agree that the type seems wrong here.

Secret word for the day: vljmyus!

Agree about the type---wish it was a little more classical, but the photo is wonderful and really conveys the right feeling.

By the way, the book is great too!
