About this title


"Waitresses are the unappreciated cement of our society. They feed and cheer the weary traveler on the road; they solace the defeated salesman; they rally the disunited family; they comfort the losers and toast the triumphant." Jack Smith, Los Angeles Times" "Like Leon Elder and Lin Rolens, I've been in love with waitresses all of my life. This book is a fine tribute to the heretofore unsung heroines of road side America." Edward Abbey, author of Desert Solitaire. From the back cover of this book

From Library Journal:

Though written by a confirmed waitress-devotee (Elder) and a former waitress-turned-editor (Rolens), there is little material here to flesh out a book. The 15 chapters (though some are too slim to qualify as such) generally are based on Terkel-like transcribed interviews and fall into three broad types: life story or part of it; philosophy of life; funny, sad, or awful incidents as a waitress. The problem arises from the repetition after reading a number of entries. The 150 photos, most by Elder, are undistinguished. Rebecca Sturm, Northern Kentucky Univ. Lib., Highland Heights<br />Copyright 1985 Reed Business Information, Inc.
