A Novel

Unknown - 1997
Rate this:

American Whiskey Bar is a remarkable faux memoir about the un-making of a film--a film which Michael Turner was commissioned to write. However, whether or not this film was ever made is debatable. And only one print is said to exist. Nevertheless, American Whiskey Bar, a film seen by only a handful of people, is well on its way to becoming a curious footnote to cinematic history.

American Whiskey Bar, the book, is an attempt to set the record straight--a story of sex, violence, lies, ambition, power, paradox, dreams, and regret. Consider yourself warned.

The script from American Whiskey Bar was produced as a live film experiment directed by acclaimed filmmaker Bruce Macdonald and aired on CityTV.

When first published in 1997, American Whiskey Bar elicited rave reviews for its anti-aesthetic, postmodern ideas of what constitutes a novel.

This new edition of the book features a new ISBN, a new cover, and a new foreword by William Gibson.
