Dishwasher is Pete Jordan's amusing memoir of his itinerant dishwashing extravaganza. "For 12 years, I was the most prolific dishlicker of them all. From 1989 - 2001, I dished my way around the country, unwittingly searching for direction. From a bagel joint in New Mexico to a Mexican joint in Brooklyn; from a dinner train in Rhode Island to the Lawrence Welk Resort in Branson, MO; from an upper-crust ladies' club to a crusty hippie commune - I washed the nation's dishes," he explains. Part adventure, part self-parody, and part self-discovery, it reveals how he transformed into "Dishwasher Pete" - the ultimate professional dish dog, unlikely folk hero, writer, and publisher of his own cult 'zine - and his struggles to find love, stability, and yes, the elusive happy-ever-after.Jordan, Pete is the author of 'Dishwasher One Man's Quest to Wash Dishes in All Fifty States', published 2007 under ISBN 9780060896423 and ISBN 0060896426.
