What do Charlie Chaplin, Ulysses S. Grant, Franz Liszt, Al Capone, George Sand, and Sharon Stone have in common? The love of a fine cigar. Barnaby Conrad III, author of The Martini and an avid fan of cigars himself, has dedicated his new book to the poetic, historical, and artistic pursuit of this wonderful, timeless passion. Drawing upon examples from art, film, literature, and politics, The Cigar presents a lushly illustrated, fascinating social history, honoring the cigar's origins and development, as well as its sexy and everlasting allure. Witty and elegant, The Cigar is the perfect gift for male or female cigar aficionados.
