Book Description:JOE JONES is Anne Lamottâ€™s raucous novel of lives gathered around Jessieâ€™s CafĂ©, "the sort of broken-down waterfront dive one might expect to find in Steinbeck." Jessie, "thin, stooped and gorgeous at seventy-nine," inherited the cafĂ© years before and it has become home to a remarkable family of characters: Louise, the cook and vortex, Joe, devoted and unfaithful; Willie, Jessieâ€™s gay grandson; Georgia, an empress dowager who never speaks; and a dozen others all living together in the sweet everyday.
