In this book, which encompasses many differing situations and evokes a variety of emotions, we meet a selection of interesting, and sometimes somewhat questionable, characters who visit The Guardsman - a pub that could have inspired the television programme "Cheers".
Amongst the regulars, and not so regular, you will find an English poet working as a janitor, and an inventor sadly lacking in entrepreneurial skills; to mention but two. You will observe the fascinating traits in people and learn the hilarious, not to be missed, story behind a curious needlepoint hanging.

"All saloons have bars in them, but not all bars are saloons."-Paul Lanier. The Guardsman of Murray Hill is mostly a fictional account of the happenings in a saloon. In this sentimental collection of short stories the author takes us into The Guardsman, a saloon in New York. He introduces us to the bartenders along with the other patrons. He also takes us along with him to the weddings of the many patrons of The Guardsman. We witness the divorces and funerals throughout the years. Not to mention the business deals made in The Guardsman! This 154 page collection of stories in The Guardsman of Murray Hill is very easy reading. They are well written angering and frustrating us. These stories will raise your spirits and make you laugh! Each chapter is a different story or memory making this book very easy to put down at will. I recommend The Guardsman of Murray Hill for older people who have spent time in a saloon or pub since they have many of the same memories.
