The Bitchy Waiter: Tales, Tips & Trials from a ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Millions of people have, at some point in their lives, waited tables. Some did it only in college or got out by sheer determination, good luck...or suicide. Others took it on as permanent employment. And many remain haunted by nightmare scenarios where they are the sole servers in restaurants packed with complaining patrons. For all those disenchanted current and former food service employees, Darron Cardosa has your back. His career began at a Texas steakhouse in 1984, and since 2008 he's vented his frustrations on the popular blog The Bitchy Waiter. A snarky mix of David Sedaris, Anthony Bourdain, Erma Bombeck, and Mo Rocca, Cardosa distills 30 years of food service into dark, funny tales - about crazy customers, out-of-control egos, and what really goes on in that fancy restaurant - that anyone who worked in the industry will recognize and relate to. 1.

Big Hand for the Band: Tales from Belfast's Roc...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The discovery of forgotten tapes brings back memories of a carefree Belfast before warring factions put an end to peaceful coexistence in that troubled city. The tales, funny and on occasion laugh-out-loud hilarious, reflect a world as seen through the eyes of a pop group performing in Belfast in 1968. The book is constructed skillfully, moving effortlessly from past to present and back again and using the playlist to open the door to memory. Big Hand for the Band is also a social history, seeded with personal experiences that are at times heart-rending but always compelling. The author, Bill Morrison, born in 1942, qualified as an architect and town planner before embarking on a career in public service that included a time in the West Indies and ultimately led to his appointment as city planner for Belfast. 1.

Ballads of a Cheechako is the sophomore volume of Yukon inspired verse from Scottish/Canadian poet Robert W. Service.After the enormous success of Service's debut book Song of a Sourdough, he was transferred with his job as a bank clerk from Whitehorse to Dawson City. There he met many veterans of the Klondike Gold Rush who were eager to tell him their tales of adventure, and he was eager to listen.After leaving his job at the bank and moving into what is now his iconic cabin on 8th Avenue in Dawson City, he began his career as a full-time author. He used his talent as a wordsmith to take the tales of the characters, hardships, and trials of the north, and fashion them into a collection of ballads full or heart, humor, and humanity.Published in 1909, the book was an immediate success and catapulted Robert W. Service to a household name around North America. This volume contains 22 verses exploring interesting characters and life in the early days of Canada's last frontier. From the man who staked the northern lights, to the Mounted Police, to hard-luck prospectors, and beyond, this book contains much of the framework for the collective vision we all share when we hear the word Klondike. 1.

In this candid and revealing audiobook, Mike Wallace tells the behind-the-scenes stories from his remarkable 60-year career. Here are intimate anecdotes, off-camera antics, never-before-told tales, and, most important, Wallace's insights about some unforgettable characters. Over the course of his career, Wallace has interviewed all but one of the presidents of the past half-century; First Ladies including Eleanor Roosevelt and Nancy Reagan; cultural figures from Frank Lloyd Wright to Johnny Carson; social revolutionaries such as Malcolm X; and performers ranging from Itzhak Perlman to Tina Turner. He has also interviewed crooks and con men. And what made it onto the television screen is only part of the story, for here Wallace offers anecdotes that reveal volumes about the true character of these celebrated people, and why they did what they did. Wallace recounts how he first got an interview with Martin Luther King, Jr., and how their friendship developed over time; the story of the Secret Service agent who felt responsible for not saving John F. Kennedy; a poignant interview with Nancy Reagan concerning her husband's Alzheimer's. Wallace tells how he infuriated all sides with his reports from the Middle East; of his conversations with Begin and Arafat; of his interviews with the shah of Iran; and of his unflinching question to the Ayatollah Khomeini. There are moments of great levity, too: with Itzhak Perlman and Shirley MacLaine. Wallace also turns his questioning eye on his own life and career, offering a frank and frequently surprising self-portrait. And he writes of his childhood, his professional friendships, and his battle with depression. Mike Wallace's challenging and perceptive questions often evoked reactions from famous figures that have sometimes changed minds and, occasionally, history. Between You and Me gives listeners a behind-the-scenes looks at one of the great broadcast journalists of our time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Wallace.

Love from Boy: Roald Dahl's Letters to His Moth...

From the author of The BFG - soon to be a major motion picture directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Penelope Wilton, Jemaine Clement, Bill Hader, and Adam Godley - a whimsical, witty, and revealing collection of the legendary children's author and writer Roald Dahl's letters written to his mother, from early childhood through Dahl's travels to Africa; his career in the Royal Air Force; his work in postwar Washington, DC, and Hollywood; and the books that made him a literary star. Roald Dahl penned his first letter to his mother, Sofie Magdalene, when he was just nine years old. The origins of a brilliantly funny, subversive, creative mind were evident in boarding school, and as he entered adulthood, his penchant for storytelling emerged in his missives home from Africa, where he was stationed by Shell Oil, and then the desert camps of the Royal Air Force. His skills were sharpened after a plane crash in Egypt landed him in Washington, DC, where his cheery letters home were cover for his work in the British Secret Service, along with gossipy updates on his spontaneous rise in Hollywood and his budding New York literary career. His mother was, in many ways, Dahl's first reader, and without her correspondence he might never have become a writer. Sofie Magdalene kept every letter her son wrote to her (sadly, her own side of the correspondence did not survive). It was she who encouraged him to tell stories and nourished his desire to fabricate, exaggerate, and entertain. In these letters Dahl began practicing his craft, developing the dark sense of humor and fantastical imagination that would later produce his timeless tales. The author of James and the Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, and The BFG, Dahl is known by millions the world over today. But writing candidly to the person who knew him best, Dahl was as singular a character as any he creat 1. Language: English. Narrator: Thomas Judd, Andrew Wincott.
