Joe Jones is Anne Lamott’s raucous novel of lives gathered around Jessie’s Café, “the sort of broken-down waterfront dive one might expect to find in Steinbeck.” Jessie, “thin, stooped and gorgeous at seventy-nine,” inherited the café years before and it has become home to a remarkable family of characters: Louise, the cook and vortex, Joe, devoted and unfaithful; Willie, Jessies gay grandson; Georgia, an empress dowager who never speaks; and a dozen others all living together in the sweet everyday.

    " I liked this book. I need more than 5 stars. It's not as good as some other books that I've given 4 to, but it's still a worthwhile read, and well written book. "

    " Interested in more of Lamott's work. This book was a bit too whimsical and predictable for my tastes. Great snapshot of the Bay Area. "

    " I'm an Anne Lamott fan- from her funky hair dreads to her hip writing style. She meanders her way through everyday lives of some pretty strange people- most of whom I liked. I was glad it didn't end with Louise taking back Joe the philandering Jerk- boy does this guy have issue or what?? I'll definately pick up another Lamott (wish she made the 1001 books to read before you die list. I hate to wander of my list but I need to once in awhile!) "

    " I really came to care about the characters who hang out at jessie's cafe. Lamott's beautiful use of language only enhances this read. "
