Rex enjoys his drink-either from behind or in front of the bar. Whether he is serving beers at a football barrel in Melbourne, or drinking it in a transit in Honolulu, or a private club in Kansas, Rex knows that there is often a laugh and a lesson inside each glass. In his collection of tall but true tales gathered from his international travels and work, Richard Plant proves that it is a fascinating experience to sit back and watch customers solve not only their own problems, but also those of the world-all while tipping back a few.
Is it a bar room or confessional? No one really knows, but Rex reckons it's both as he overhears a variety of conversations as a bartender who journeys from Melbourne to Britain to Singapore. In his diverse compilation of humorous anecdotes, Rex highlights an eclectic group of characters surrounded by lonely barmaids and naïve tourists, exploring the fact that not all things behind the bar are sweetness and light.
Pull up a stool and hop on. Life's a Brew: A Laugh in a Glass opens up a world where the beer is frothy, the ice tinkles in the glass, and the stories keep everyone entertained.
