READ ALL ABOUT IT -- BAR FLIES IS NOW AVAILABLE AS A BOOK!

"BAR FLIES: TRUE STORIES FROM THE EARLY YEARS" FEATURES 60 ESSAYS PERFORMED LIVE AT SHOWS DURING OUR FIRST FOUR SEASONS. FROM THE STAGE TO THE PAGE, NOW YOU CAN HOLD BAR FLIES IN YOUR HANDS AND SPEND TIME WITH THESE AMAZING TALES OF FIRST DATES, FINAL GOODBYES AND JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN.

"ONE MARK OF A REALLY GOOD BAR IS THE QUALITY OF THE STORIES YOU HEAR WITHIN ITS WALLS. VALLEY BAR IS ARIZONA'S BASEMENT VERSION OF THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA IN THAT REGARD, AND THE BAR FLIES ANTHOLOGY IS LIKE ITS ILIAD. ALL THE GREAT THEMES -- LOVE, DESPAIR, LOSS, WORK, FRIENDSHIP, STRIVING -- ALL OF IT'S THERE, GENEROUSLY LARDED WITH SHARP HUMOR AND UNEXPECTED PLOT TWISTS. IT'S A REMINDER OF THE RANGE OF LIFE-EXPERIENCE IN THIS STATE, AS WELL AS THE CONSTANT SURPRISE OF THINKING YOU UNDERSTAND A PERSON ONLY TO DISCOVER WEIRD ANGLES. PULL UP A CHAIR AND PREPARE TO GET RIVETED." -- TOM ZOELLNER, NYT BESTSELLING AUTHOR
