Waiter Rant — Heavy Holds

Kansas City, MO, Public Library ends its ORDER UP! Tales from the Dining Room series of programs with an appearance tomorrow evening by the author of Waiter Rant. The series  “celebrates the triumphs and trials of service industry employees (waiters, waitresses, and cohorts) as well as the people who love them.”

The book, which began as the blog WaiterRant.net, has received strong media attention, sending it to #43 on Amazon over the weekend (it’s now at #65). Libraries show light ordering and heavy reserves (12 to 1 in some areas). Most do not own the audio.

Wall Street Journal, 8/1.  “Take Your Own Damn Order

“acerbic, biting and often hilarious accounts of

life behind the scenes at the front of the house.”
