Author Kenneth Weeneabout this book: The longing for home, for family: how basic is that yearning to the human experience? For the people who hang out there, The Dew Drop Inne, a local bar in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is their home. Their drinking buddies are their family. Some of their stories are sad and some humorous; most are a mixture of laughter and tears.

Cal is a regular. He and is best friend Ephraim spend a lot of time there, but that's what you'd expect from a couple of drunks. Through Cal's eyes the reader gets to know some great characters. The Hopi Indian who delivers the beer and has a trickster's heart. Sal, the bar owner, who for all his gruffness falls in love and really does care about his customers. There's a woman whose children have rejected her, a newspaper woman, a guy who can't drink tequila, and an ex-army lifer who drifts between the bar and the V.A. psych ward: the cast goes on and on.

The stories interact because the characters interact. With lots of sex, some crime, emotional upset, three Santa Clauses, a Yak, strings of pearls, a XXX movie house, a picnic in the park, a blood drive, and traditional Mexican dancing: Tales From the Dew Drop Inne is fun to read and filled with unexpected twists.
