    One of my Favorites

    Anne Lamott's talent for drawing her characters so completely leaves the reader feeling that these are people we know in our own lives.Set in a restaurant in California, the diner itself is a character as well as the eclectic group of customers who are more like family to one another.The relationships are the story. At the end of the book, I wanted to visit them again just as I would any friend.

    Wonderful Writing

    This book is at times, laugh-out-loud funny, poignant, hopefull and uplifting. Anne Lamott's character development and descriptive writing are absolutelly wonderful. In your minds eye, you can clearly visualize each character, see the cafe, view the boats out on San Fransico bay and even smell the salt air! Joe Jones is only one of several characters, but not the main one. He seems at times almost to be a background player, which leaves me intrigued by the book's title. I truly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone. It's not going to change your life, but it will leave you feeling good. It's like a snap-shot of a group of folks, who's lives revolve around a little rundown cafe, overlooking the water. When you've finished reading, you'll put the book down and feel like you've had a brief vacation at the shore.
