Summary

Tom Bullock's 'The Ideal Bartender' is an influential work in the canon of culinary literature, specifically within the vibrant sphere of mixology. The book is a tableau of pre-Prohibition American cocktail culture, a tome carefully presenting a collection of indispensable recipes, expert techniques, and insights into the convivial art of drink crafting. Within its pages, engrossed readers will find not just the mechanics of mixological skill but also the subtle social interplay that defines a true bartending savant. The literary style is precise yet imbued with the warmth and charm of a bygone era, and the edition by DigiCat Publishing has upheld the reverence for Bullock's original work by ensuring the text is presented with both historical authenticity and contemporary accessibility.

Tom Bullock, the gentleman behind the mixology manifesto, was a heralded African-American bartender who transcended the racial boundaries of his time with his consummate skills behind the bar. Bullock's experiences and prestige in the hospitality industry during the early 20th century make this book an artifact of personal expertise, impassioned instruction, and cultural heritage. His authorial voice embodies the nuances and dedication of a committed artisan, offering sage bar advice that has aged as finely as the spirits he recommends.

'The Ideal Bartender' stands as an essential read for aficionados of cocktail history and practitioners of the bartending craft. This carefully curated edition is ideal for those seeking to reconnect with the foundational elements of mixology, as much a historical document as it is a practical guide. DigiCat Publishing's reissuing of this classic caters to the modern reader's appetite for both tradition and the finer points of hospitality and service. Bullock's work is a testament to the cultural tapestry of American society and an inspiration for the contemporary bartender seeking to evoke the spirit and expertise of a bygone golden age of cocktails.

    "The Cloak" (sometimes translated as "Overcoat") is a short story by Russian author Nikolai Gogol, published in 1842. The story and its author have had great influence on Russian literature, as expressed in a quote attributed to Fyodor Dostoyevsky: "We all come out from Gogol's 'Overcoat'." The story narrates the life and death of titular councillor Akaky Akakievich Bashmachkin, an impoverished government clerk and copyist in the Russian capital of St. Petersburg. Akaky is dedicated to his job, though little recognized in his department for his hard work. Instead, the younger clerks tease him and attempt to distract him whenever they can. His threadbare overcoat is often the butt of their jokes. Akaky decides it is necessary to have the coat repaired, so he takes it to his tailor, Petrovich, who declares the coat irreparable, telling Akaky he must buy a new overcoat.
    The cost of a new overcoat is beyond Akaky's meager salary, so he forces himself to live within a strict budget to save sufficient money to buy the new overcoat. Meanwhile, he and Petrovich frequently meet to discuss the style of the new coat. During that time, Akaky's zeal for copying is replaced with excitement about his new overcoat, to the point that he thinks of little else. Finally, with the addition of an unexpectedly large holiday salary bonus, Akaky has saved enough money to buy a new overcoat.
