Ivan Doig presents “The Bartender’s Tale” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 30 at Eagle Harbor Book Company.
This is a tale about a one-of-a-kind father, Tom, and his precocious son, Rusty, who own a bar in the town of Gros Ventre, in northern Montana. In the summer of 1960, change arrives with gale force, in the person of Proxy, a taxi dancer Tom knew back when, and her beatnik daughter, Francine. As Rusty struggles to decipher the oddities of adult behavior and the mysteries build toward a reckoning, Doig wonderfully captures how the world becomes bigger and the past becomes more complex in the last moments of childhood.
