The Tender Bar
The Tender Bar tells the story of J.R., a fatherless boy growing up in the glow of a bar where the bartender, his Uncle Charlie , is the sharpest and most colorful of an assortment of quirky and demonstrative father figures. As the boy's determined mother struggles to provide her son with opportunities denied to her - and leave the dilapidated home of her outrageous if begrudgingly supportive father - J.R. begins to gamely, if not always gracefully, pursue his romantic and professional dreams - with one foot persistently placed in Uncle Charlie's bar. The Tender Bar is based on the best-selling memoir of the same name by J.R. Moehringer.
