Five Star Review for Tales from the Hot Dog Grill by Billy Ehrlacher!
This is a wonderfully imagined and executed book! A comic, satirical novel disguised as a memoir, it follows the adventures of Jon and Kikki through the underbelly of fast food America paying particular attention to the pomposity of people with power over other people. The author is a seasoned (no pun intended) cabaret performer who uses his biting wit on those whose specialty is making other people's lives miserable, but the reader still emerges with their faith in humankind.
Tales from the Hot Dog Grill:
"The setting of our tale is Doomsdale" and Jon and Kiki's story goes downhill from there! College students, Jon and Kiki work for the OTHER hot dog stand in Doomsdale and their boss, Wicked Wilma, hires them to go underground and work for the popular competition to discover their secret ingredient....hint: it's not the sauce! A modern day Candide, Jon romps through the absurd world of fast food and concludes it's the WORST of all possible worlds.
