New Book Exposes What Really Goes on Behind the Scenes in New York Bars

SOURCE Antagonist Movement, Inc.

NEW YORK, Dec. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Barstool Prophets is a unique, fresh account of New York City's bar scene, one told from the other side of the bar: the bartender's side.

The New York bar scene is usually told from the customer, mingling and drinking point of view, often glamorized and exaggerated. This witty novel exposes the drug-fueled, low-life secrets of Manhattan's bar scene through the eyes of a young bartender. Humor and melancholy collide to showcase a brutally honest narrative of this seemingly private world.

Written by Ethan H. Minsker, Barstool Prophets shows how bartenders are the rock stars of the Lower East Side. When people say New York City is the cultural center of the universe, they actually mean a barstool in an unknown bar. Readers entertainingly learn what bartenders think about their patrons and what really happens when the sun sets.

"The book follows the lives of a wild spectrum of characters in the 1990s and early 2000s, all of whom become the bartender's family, for good or bad," said Mr. Minsker. "As the characters grow and change, so does the Lower East Side. The narrator takes you through this evolution with frank humility and sympathy for the characters."

Barstool Prophets is self-published by Mr. Minsker and the Antagonist Movement, Inc. ( The book is now available on ( and St. Mark's Book Store and McNally Jackson Book Store in Manhattan. An e-book version will be available in the near future on B&N Pubit and the Google e-bookstore.
