“As if The Remains of the Day had been written by Kingsley Amis, The Waiter is…one of the most purely entertaining novels I’ve read in years. This book is a meal you won’t want to finish.” —J. Ryan Stradal, New York Times bestselling author of Kitchens of the Great Midwest In the tradition of the modern classics The Remains of the Day and A Gentleman in Moscow comes The Waiter, in which the finely tuned balance of a timeworn European restaurant is irrevocably upset by an unexpected guest. The Hills dates from a time when pigs were pigs and swine were swine, the Maître D’ likes to say—in other words from the mid-1800s. Every day begins with the head waiter putting on his jacket. In with one arm, then the other. Shrugged onto his shoulders. Horn buttons done up. Always the same. There is clinking. Cutlery is moved around porcelain and up to mouths. But in this universe unto itself, there is scarcely any contact between the tables of regulars. And that is precisely how the waiter likes it. Sheer routine…until a beautiful young woman walks through the door and upsets the delicate balance of the restaurant and all it has come to represent. Told in a kaleidoscopic rotation of voices—the headwaiter, the bartender, the coat checker, the chef who never speaks—The Waiter marks the North American debut of an exciting new voice in literary fiction that will leave you longing to sit down at The Hills, order a drink, and watch the world go by….

The Waiter

You can call him a commis waiter, a busser, or a helper, but it doesn't matter—he represents the entrylevel bitch. Most people treat them like a missing link in Darwin's theory, something between the ape and a human.

yHi, my name is Matt, and I'll be your waiter tonight.y Since becoming a waiter, Matthew Foster has uttered these words 67,892 times, he has cried on the job 11 times, has had two nervous breakdowns, and has committed 27 acts of anonymous revenge on rude restaurant patrons. Now this comic essayist brings you his take on the modern American dining experience. In the comic spirit of Dave Barry and Drew Carey comes a humorous look into the trenches of Americays true favorite pastime: dining out. From tales of waiting on the Reverend Jimmy Swaggart to a commentary on the nature of germs in the bathrooms of fast food restaurants, Matthew Foster strips away the garnishes and leaves us with the meat: the humor and pathos beyond the call for the yWaiter!y
