Comments for Dishwasher
Dishwasher by Pete Jordan is a memoir of itinerant years spent washing dishes in various parts of the United States. Although the goal was to wash in all 50 states, he didn't come close to reaching that off the cuff goal.
My favorite part of the book was his time spent in Alaska. It was probably the place where he fit best and learned the most about his chosen profession. But Jordan at that stage in his life wasn't happy to stay put for any amount of time. Eventually Alaska as the perfect job lost its luster and he was off again.
While not a travelogue, it's still an interesting look at the world of dishwashing. For anyone who has been a dishwasher (I was briefly in 1992, in case you're curious) it's an oddly captivating read.
