Cocktail Nation: The Definative Guide to the Lounge Universe by Koop Kooper (Bear MANOR) $19.95 – Koop Kooper, the Cocktail universe’s high priest of all things hep, swinging, and swank, and cyber disc-jockey of his radio show, “The Cocktail Nation,” has unleashed the definitive guide to the Lounge universe. Replete with gassin interviews and cool pixeramas, he reveals the incredible diorama of Cocktail culture, lifestyle, and music. Koop mixes it up with cool luminaries and pioneers of the Cocktail soundtrack, such as hepster Jack Constanzo, the bongo player of the 1950s, shakes a martini with the leaders of the revival Combustible Edison, trades smart lip with comedian satirist Shelley Berman and 21st century hit-makers Martini Kings, heads down the dark streets of Cocktail noir, muscling it up with croonoir Jimmy Vargas, then it’s off to the Vegas pool, where he conducts an underwater interview with gorgeous fire-eating mermaid Marina. Koop Kooper’s Cocktail Nation book is a glorious panorama of all things Lounge, created by the swank meister of uber cool himself. As featured in Tiki Magazine.

With a cover by Gabrielle Bell.
