Abstract:

In Waiting: True Confessions of a Waitress -- part memoir, part social commentary, part guide on how to behave when dining out -- Ginsberg takes readers on an intimate journey of her twenty years as a waitress at the dingiest of diners, a soap-operatic Italian restaurant, an exclusive five-star dining club, and more. While chronicling her parallel evolution as a writer and single mother, the book also takes a behind-the-scenes look at restaurant life. Waiting is for everyone who has had to wait for their life to begin -- only to realize, suddenly, that they're living it.
