Steve Almond, "Young Waitresses"/"Old Waitresses"

Odes to waitresses at the dusks and dawns of their waitressing careers.

(from Story Quarterly, issue 42)

Really I read two short stories today. Or maybe I didn’t read any, since these are more like brief, well-written ponderings on the subject of waitress. No characters, plot or what have you. But a good couple things to read nonetheless.

I’ve returned to Kavalier & Klay.

    these are flash fiction pieces. They are very good. Flash fictions are usually under 1,000 words and display a brief event or story. They usually go in depth about a select character. In this case young and old waitresses.
