Gift from Jennifer of Relentless Reading (or perhaps I won it in a giveaway?)
This is exactly what the title and subtitle suggest – short vignettes about what it meant to own a car wash in the 70s. Nothing too outstanding, not terribly exciting, either. He met interesting people, both horrid and wonderful; the stories offer views of ‘slice of life’, coming of age, and challenges in running a small-business. Well-written, plenty of absurdity and told with a touch of humor.
Rating: Three slices of pie. No pie was mentioned in the course of the book.
