"Laid off from the front lines of a hedge fund in the midst of the financial crisis, Jimmy Adams decides to get an "honest job" for a change. Before he knows what hit him, he finds himself waiting on tables of barflies at a 24-hour diner. Staffed by a motley crew of cooks and servers, the restaurant provides a slew of comedic experiences as the author waits on man-hungry female patrons, a stonemason who carves his own teeth, and a man seeking refuge from the ghost in his apartment. In a unique narrative that is as thought-provoking as it is sidesplitting, Waffle Street unravels the enigmas of money, banking, and grits once and for all."--Page 4 of cover.
