Yuri Kagan

Author Yuri Kaganabout this book: Yuri Kagan is the guy next door. He's a recovering fat kid, turned bartender, turned comedian, turned author. Watch his metamorphasis. Based on his 10 years of bartending, "Vodka and Limelight" is a compilation of short-stories where Yuri brings us behind the scenes of working in San Francisco's highest volume bar. Young and making a good living. Is there a price? See what it's really like.

"Vodka and Limelight" is a fictitious, touching and downright funny memoir/expose on San Francisco's nightlife. See first hand what the Castro is really like and not the romanticized, idealized version we often hear about. The good, the bad and drunk are all here. See how bartending brought Yuri to standup comedy and gave himself a voice. Go inside San Francisco's largest bar, meet the staff and learn that everyone has an expiration date. It's a story for anyone who has ever felt invisible. Learn straight from the source about this world in funny, touching and provocative light.
