In The Bartender’s Tale, Ivan Doig creates a new chapter in the town of Gros Venture, Montana. Rusty, a boy of twelve and “an accident between the sheets,” narrates his summer with his father, Tom Harry, bartender and owner of the Medicine Lodge. Rusty never knew his mother, and their simple life unravels as he wonders who she is. The tension between his father’s past and his love for his son is a story told with wit and craft.
