Laura Albert, better known as J.T. LeRoy, details her side of what became a major literary scandal; a case of credit card fraud sets an amateur sleuth on a crime-solving caper; a young man is drafted into the Vietnam War and trained to be a killer, but during his third tour of duty finds that compassion still lives in his heart.
Whether the decor is faux '50s silver and neon or authentic greasy spoon, diners are classic Americana, down to the familiar menu items. Rich, poor, black, white--all rub shoulders in the vinyl booths and at formica counters. We explore the enduring appeal and nostalgia of the diner.
