‘Tales from The Red Lion’ is a series of books largely set in a British pub. It could be any pub really, and hopefully reminds you of yours, hence why I used the most common pub name in the country, The Red Lion. The books highlight slices of contemporary British life, seen through the eyes of our narrator Dan, one particularly enthusiastic devotee of this establishment. Dan not only can wallow in his own problems after one too many, but also loves to seek out the stories of others who inhabit these four walls. As the drinks flow, even these repressed Brits begin to reveal to us the successes and failures, the hopes and the fears that form their real lives, hidden behind the default sober, stoic façade that they bring in with them.
