Daily specials. Bottomless coffee. Homefries. Pie. Ah, the diner. We bet you have a favorite: somewhere you go for unforgettable home-style cooking and camaraderie.
This anthology captures 18 stories about diners and family restaurants. On the menu you'll find rich and flavorful essays that drip with detail like au jus on a daily blue plate special. Our contributors transport us to diners in bustling center cities, small towns, and along desolate highways. At these restaurants, they come of age, celebrate life milestones, recall days past, find themselves, and fall in love.
Slide into your favorite red vinyl booth or grab your favorite stool at the counter and enjoy this diner-themed essay collection.
Dine is the second title in our The Way Things Were Series, a line of anthologies that celebrate the things we miss, the things we long for; forthcoming titles will focus on local newspapers, mom and pop stores, corner bars, and road trips.
