Anne Lamott (Author)
Joe Jones is Anne Lamotts raucous novel of lives gathered around Jessies Cafe, a restaurant from another era, the sort of broken-down waterfront dive one might expect to find in Steinbeck or Saroyan. Jessie, thin, stooped and gorgeous at seventy-nine, inherited the cafe years before and it has become home to a remarkable family of characters: Louise, the cook and vortex, sexy and sweet, somewhere on the cusp between curvaceous and fat; Joe, devoted and unfaithful; Willie, Jessies gay grandson, (I thought he just had good posture, said Jessie); Georgia, an empress dowager who never speaks; and a dozen others all living together in the sweet everyday. Lamotts rich and timeless themes are also here: love and loyalty, loss and recovery, staying on and staying together, the power of humor to heal and to bind. Out of print for fifteen years, Joe Jones is a novel of hilarity and joy
