Synopsis:

Danny, a Yale student on Spring Break, who is spending his vacation working in his father's lunch wagon, the Roach Coach, tries to cope with an increasingly complicated love life and an incipient battle with a gang over his father's business. Reissue. 100,000 first printing.


Review:

"[A] smart, engaging novel....Perrotta treats these people fairly--no one is better or worse than anyone else. The 'poor' kids don't come out on top in the end. You don't hate the rich ones....Every character, like JOE COLLEGE itself, is lovable, resonant and memorable."

Suzy Hansen, Salon, 09/13/2000

Review:

"Perotta has a dark streak, but he's not an angst-ridden or moody writer. He tends to hustle his downers offstage as quickly as possible. His prose is cheerful and smooth (some might say too much so)....Nonetheless, he's created an absorbing, fleshed-out portrait of an American male edging toward adulthood by crossing seemingly rigid social boundaries....And his gently satirical takes on the lunch-truck business and on a certain kind of college culture, circa 1982, are full of funny, dead-on observations."

Maria Russo, New York Times Book Review, 10/15/2000

Book Description: St. Martin s Press, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 216 x 140 mm. Brand New Book. For many college students, Spring Break means fun and sun in Florida. For Danny, a Yale junior, it means two weeks behind the wheel of the Roach Coach, his father s lunch truck, which plies the parking lots of office parks in central New Jersey. But Danny can use the time behind the coffee urn to try and make sense of a love life that s gotten a little complicated. There s loyal and patient hometown honey Cindy and her recently dropped bombshell to contend with. And there s also lissome Polly back in New Haven--with her shifting moods, perfect thrift store dresses and inconvenient liaison with a dashing professor. If girl problems aren t enough, there s the constant menace of the Lunch Monsters, a group of thugs who think Danny has planted the Roach Coach in their territory. Joe College is Tom Perrotta s warmest and funniest fiction yet, a comic journey into the dark side of love, higher education and food service. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780312361785
