Alumni Book Club Book Discussion Comments

The Hofstra University Alumni Book Club will hold a Book Discussion on Sunday, September 22, 2013. This month's selection is The Tender Bar by J.R. Moehringer. The Tender Bar is the story of a young man who knows his father only as "The Voice," of a single mother struggling to make a better life for her son, and of a riotously dysfunctional family from Long Island. But more than anything else, Moehringer's book is a homage to the culture of the local pub. That's where young J.R. seeks out the companionship of male role models in place of his absent father, where he receives an education that has served him well in his career and where, inevitably, he looks for love, bemoans its absence, and mourns its loss.
