“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….

Maybe one day you will get a twenty pound tip, maybe some child will puke on the floor and you will have to clean it up, maybe a drunk will piss himself in your section, maybe a sexy lady will give you her number, I mean—anything could happen. That was the whole beauty of this job. I’d come to work in the mood of a lovely and pleasant, not too harsh, hangover. As I was walking around in the restaurant, I could feel the sense of eternity. It seemed as if some things hadn’t changed and they wouldn’t. I could drink a lot and still enjoy it, never calling sick too. I was still here, still doing my bits. How long was it by now? Who knows, I couldn’t even remember what I was doing yesterday. Meet Soren – a young and rebellious man from Sweden, who’s stepping into the world of hospitality industry in England. Working as a waiter in several restaurants, he’s revealing the secrets of the profession, as well as, trying to deal with his problems, addictions and misfortunes. Share Soren’s bitter view of life and his dark sense of humour. Will his life go anywhere?

'Delicious.' New York Times 'As if The Remains of the Day had been written by Kingsley Amis . . . brilliantly exquisite . . . This book is a meal you won’t want to finish.' J. Ryan Stradal 'A sly amuse bouche of a novel . . . its atmosphere and observations are deliciously rich.' Mail on Sunday Welcome to The Hills, Oslo’s most esteemed restaurant, an institution stewed in tradition and clinging to the faded grandeur of old Europe. A neurotic waiter tends to the desires of his clientele. Aristocrats and artistes, wealthy widows and roguish entrepreneurs, he observes all their dramas with a wit as sharp as a filleting knife. At table ten sits the impeccable Mr Graham, impatiently awaiting a special guest. When at last she arrives – young, beautiful, mysterious – she will prove to be a challenging new flavour, threatening both our waiter’s nerves, and the delicately balanced ingredients of the room. Exquisitely observed and wickedly playful, The Waiter is a novel for lovers of food, wine, and of European sensibilities, but also for anyone who spends time in restaurants, on either side of the service.

NOW OPTIONED FOR TV - this book is two of three in a series. Book 2 of Justin Sirois's So Say the Waiters explores the history of kidnApp long before everyone carried cell phones. While Henry and Dani become accomplished kidnAppers, it's Glen Haymaker, one of the company's co-founders, who is stealing the show-and maybe more. He is more concerned about the public spectacle and becoming a celebrity within the network than sticking to the company's ethics. Jess and Kelly see Haymaker's extreme methods firsthand, and it will dramatically change their relationship. Uly, Jess's younger brother, might be caught in that crossfire. If So Say the Waiters Book 1 made you question what you might do with the power of kidnApp, book 2 will scare you into realizing the creators and administrators of these apps live in a world between worlds. Haymaker, through his dazzling manipulation, will push that power to its very limits. + "So Say the Waiters is dope. It renders the Baltimore scene lovingly, from the ground, while tapping into that contemporary human need to escape through the shifting space where technology and dreams collide. A cyberpunk novel for a corporatized generation." Matthew Porterfield director of Putty Hill, I Used to be Darker, and Hamilton + "So Say the Waiters could easily be the next Repo Man."

At last, here is a compassionate, humane, and informative volume on the most unique and vulnerable group in our society today--homeless children. Homeless Children: The Watchers and the Waiters is unique because it offers an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the children and the enormously complicated causes of and solutions to their tragedy. The contributing authors discuss homeless children and the resolution of the problem, as well as the resulting policy and practice implications. From this single source of current research, policy, and practice information, you will better understand the circumstances of homelessness. You will also discover the impact of homelessness on children--the psychological effects on children’s development and behavior, the weakening of mother/child relationships, and the declining status of their physical health. Experts also describe the difficulties created by underfunded, poorly managed, and politically unpopular programs for homeless children, underscoring the need for a national policy to address the problem. Homeless Children: The Watchers and the Waiters is a thought-provoking and insightful book that must be read by professionals who work in human service agencies, sociologists, psychologists, health care workers, child care workers, teachers, and clergy. Policymakers, government officials, and child advocates must also read this masterful volume.
