Diary of a Waitress by Carolyn Meyer Summary

In 1926, droves of Americans traveled by train across the United States to visit the West. They ate at Harvey Houses, where thousands of well-trained waitresses provided first-class service. The Waitresses: The Journal of a Harvey Girl tells the first-person story of one spunky girl, Kitty Evans, as she faces the often funny and painful experiences she and fellow waitresses Cordelia and Emmy endure. As Kitty writes about her escapades, a loveable teenager emerges; she embraces adventure, independence, her position as a Harvey Girl, and a freelance writing career. In this fast-paced novel, best-selling author Carolyn Meyer, who has visited and researched several Harvey Hotels, brings together an unforgettable heroine with the universal themes of friendship, identity, and young love.

Hey, Waitress! by Alison Owings Summary

Most of us have sat across the tray from a waitress, but how many of us know what really is going on from her side? Hey, Waitress! aims to tell us. Containing lively, personal portraits of waitresses from many different walks of life, this book is the first of its kind to show the intimate, illuminating, and often shocking behind-the-scenes stories of waitresses' daily shifts and daily lives. Alison Owings traveled the country—from border to border and coast to coast—to hear firsthand what waitresses think about their lives, their work, and their world. Part journalism and part oral history, Hey, Waitress! introduces an eclectic cast of characters: a ninety-five-year-old Baltimore woman who may have been the oldest living waitress, a Staten Island firebrand laboring at a Pizza Hut, a well-to-do runaway housewife, a Native American proud of her financial independence, a college student loving her diner more than her studies, a Cajun grandmother of twenty-two, and many others. The book also offers vivid slices of American history. The stories describe the famous sit-in at the Woolworth's counter in Greensboro, North Carolina, which helped spark the civil rights movement; early struggles for waitress unions; and battles against sexually discriminatory hiring in restaurants. A superb and accessible means of breaking down stereotypes, this book reveals American waitresses in all their complexity and individuality, and will surely change the way we order, tip, and, most of all, behave in restaurants.

Waiting by Debra Ginsberg Summary

A veteran waitress dishes up a spicy and robust account of life as it really exists behind kitchen doors. Part memoir, part social commentary, part guide to how to behave when dining out, Debra Ginsberg's book takes readers on her twentyyear journey as a waitress at a soap-operatic Italian restaurant, an exclusive five-star dining club, the dingiest of diners, and more. While chronicling her evolution as a writer, Ginsberg takes a behind-the-scenes look at restaurant life-revealing that yes, when pushed, a server will spit in food, and, no, that's not really decaf you're getting-and how most people in this business are in a constant state of waiting to do something else.

The Psychopathology of Everyday Life by Sigmund Freud Summary

This collection of writings is famous for giving us the phrase 'Freudian slip'. It also builds up a strong social history of Vienna and the middle-class social milieu of Freud and his patients. Through a series of case histories, some no longer than a few lines long, Freud explores how it is that normal people make slips of speech, writing, reading and remembering in their everyday life, and reveals what it is that they betray about the existence of a sub-text or subliminal motive to our conscious actions. As he explains, most of these slips tend of be of a relatively anodyne nature, but some are a little more sinister, particularly those where pride or thwarted love are concerned...

The Fireman and the Waitress by Dessa Kaspardlov Summary

The story of The Fireman and The Waitress is an analogy for the process of Dessanomics - a process developed to help maximize wealth and most efficiently manage debt and tax burden. The Fireman and The Waitress were clients of Dessa's, and early on in their relationship, Dessa realized that this particular couple was an iconic representation of most of her clients. They were both in their late 40s, making a good living at jobs they enjoyed, and while they were making regular contributions to an RRSP and making accelerated payments on their mortgage, they were running out of money before they ran out of month! They had a mortgage, credit cards and a line of credit, and despite all their success, it seemed like they just weren't getting ahead. Using Dessanomics, and the money they used to pay to their bank and the government, The Fireman and The Waitress were able to turn their financial lives around. Now they are living comfortably with more cash flow, a reduced tax burden and a mortgage that will be paid in half the time! They're paying themselves first, and they're looking forward to an active, financially stable retirement. There are a lot of books about financial planning on the market today. This book is different - it doesn't feel like you're putting your money on a diet! This book is for everyone who wants to make a million dollar difference in their lives, without giving up living in the process.

Lives of the Saints by Frank Arricale Summary

Arcangelo Vidi, a middle-aged man in Florence, is tormented, torn between a painting and his wife. In late-nineteenth-century St. Petersburg, Fyodor Petrov returns from the dead and can still juggle, although not very well. Gabriella Sammartini, a talented young mezzo-soprano in Venice, dreams of becoming a hatcheck girl. In medieval England, Eldred the Shoemakers Son is blessed with an unusual number of noses and multiple pairs of shoes. A Parisian woman carries seven tears with her wherever she goes. Such are the Lives of the Saints, the matically-related, centuriesspanning character studies set mostly in Europe and almost entirely on Earth. By turns poignant and funny, tragic and absurd, Lives of the Saints is at once a thought-provoking meditation on time, mortality, and love, and an entertaining compendium of sheer silliness. In this finely crafted collection of gems, Frank Arricale displays a remarkable range of expression. Whether dealing with the heartbreak of loss or the inanity of everyday life, he demonstrates a brilliant sense of timing and a keen awareness of the human condition.

The Secret Life of Bikers by Jerry Langton Summary

From the bestselling author of The Hard Way Out and for fans of Sons of Anarchy comes a new book that reveals the cold, dark and dirty secrets of the biker underworld Hells Angels. Bandidos. Outlaws. Vagos. What would you do if a biker sat beside you in a bar? What about if a group of leather-and-denim-clad tough guys established a clubhouse in your neighbourhood? Television and movies glamourize bikers as freedom fighters, men who do things their own way, brothers in arms who party all the time and ride Harleys to escape everyday life, while news reports paint them as criminals, responsible for drug trafficking, brutal assaults and murder. That paradox, each side true in its own way, is what makes outlaw motorcycle gangs so very fascinating. What really goes on behind those heavily secured steel clubhouse doors? In The Secret Life of Bikers, bestselling crime author Jerry Langton tells the stories of the men who live the biker life as they have never been told before. Langton has interviewed many bikers over the past decade and shares their stories in these pages, often in their own words. He has also interviewed members of law enforcement to hear the biker story from the other side of the ledger. All told, this book offers highly unique and often bloody insights into the everyday workings of motorcycle clubs: the club hierarchy, the clubhouse, the parties, the initiation rituals, the brawls, the bodies and the brotherhood of blood.

Life Among the Apaches by John C. Cremony Summary

One of the original seventeenth-century historical accounts of the Apaches and the southwestern American Indians. John C. Cremony’s first encounter with the Indians of the Southwest occurred in the early 1850s, when he accompanied John R. Bartlett’s boundary commission surveying the United States–Mexican border. Some ten years later, as an officer of the California Volunteers, he renewed his acquaintance, particularly with the Apaches, whom he came to know as few white Americans before him had. Cremony was the first white man to become fluent in the Apache language, and he published the first dictionary of their language as a tool for the US Army. Cremony’s account of his experiences, published in 1868, quickly became, and remains today, an indispensable source on Apache beliefs, tribal life, and fighting tactics. Although its original purpose was to induce more effective military suppression of the Apaches, it has all the fast-paced action and excitement of a novel and the authenticity of an ethnographic and historical document. Life Among the Apaches is unrivaled in its attention to detail, and Cremony’s firsthand accounts of the intricacies of daily life for the Apaches make it both an essential text on Native American culture and a truly important anthropological work. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in history--books about World War II, the Third Reich, Hitler and his henchmen, the JFK assassination, conspiracies, the American Civil War, the American Revolution, gladiators, Vikings, ancient Rome, medieval times, the old West, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

Changing Working Life and the Appeal of the Extreme Right by Jörg Flecker Summary

This book investigates the interplay of the recent transformation of working life and the growing appeal of political right-wing populism and extremism in Europe. It explores the individual and collective reactions and the strategies people develop in order to come to terms with socio-economic change. It raises the question of whether, and to what extent, changes in the employment system and in working life contribute to making people receptive to xenophobia, nationalism and racism. Based on an eight country study using both quantitative and qualitative research methods, this volume makes a significant contribution to the deeper understanding of the subjective reactions to socio-economic change and its political reverberations.

The Waitress Was New by Dominique Fabre Summary

Pierre is a veteran bartender in a café in the outskirts of Paris. He observes his customers as they come and go – the young man who drinks beer as he reads Primo Levi, the fellow who from time to time strips down and plunges into the nearby Seine, the few regulars who eat and drink there on credit – sizing them up with great accuracy and empathy. Pierre doesn’t look outside more than necessary; he prefers to let the world come to him. Soon, however, the café must close its doors, and Pierre finds himself at a loss. As we follow his stream of thoughts over three days, Pierre’s humanity and profound solitude both emerge. The Waitress Was New is a moving portrait of human anguish and weakness, of understated nobility and strength. Lire est un plaisir describes Dominique Fabre as a "magician of the everyday."

Resurrecting Langston Blue by Robert Greer Summary

Denver-based detective C. J. Floyd discovers a government conspiracy when a Vietnam vet who went missing in action reappears after thirty-four years. For decades, Carmen Nguyen, an Amerasian emergency-room doctor in a Denver hospital, thought her father, Langston Blue, was dead after vanishing in Vietnam. Now she knows he’s alive, and she’s hired bail bondsman C. J. Floyd to find him. But what C. J. and his assistant, former Marine intelligence sergeant Flora Jean Benson, discover is nothing short of criminal. An elite assassin, Langston was witness to a clandestine US-sanctioned war atrocity so dishonorable that he abandoned the rogue operation and went running for his life. Ever since, he’s been MIA, considered an expendable threat to military top brass. Resurfacing in Denver from self-imposed exile in the backwoods of West Virginia, he plans to locate the daughter he never knew and expose a truth more horrifying than anyone could imagine. But a Colorado congressman poised to capture a seat in the US Senate also knows what happened on that mission in the jungles of Southeast Asia—and he has a lot to lose. In resurrecting Langston’s past, C. J., Carmen, and Flora are caught in a treacherous plot that leads to the highest levels of government, where the most powerful and corrupt players in the country are still hiding from the ghosts of war—and will do anything it takes to make sure their secrets die with Langston Blue. Bestselling author Robert Greer has been hailed as a “taut, powerful writer” (The Plain Dealer). Fans of hardboiled detective stories or the novels of Walter Mosley will enjoy his series featuring a tough African American sleuth in the modern-day West. Resurrecting Langston Blue is the 4th book in the C. J. Floyd Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
