A Shot In The Dark by Barry Reeves
Following author Barry Reeves’ move from his native Ireland to New York City, A Shot in the Dark chronicles his bartending experiences in Hell’s Kitchen from 1999 all the way through 2012. From hookers, pimps, gangsters, and transvestites, to policemen, firemen, celebrities, and priests-oh, and don’t forget the drunken’ wankers-Reeves provides his inside take on NYC and packs an arsenal of witty and highly entertaining stories on his interactions with all walks of life. One-night stands, fights, swingers, and joy rides in cop cars run rampant in this explosive and side-splitting memoir: The funniest book written since The Bible.
Barry Reeves continues to live and work in Hell’s Kitchen, NYC, where he also continues to write. A recent graduate of New York University’s film school, Reeves has brought some of his favorite stories to life through short films.
