• "As if<i> The Remains of the Day</i> had been written by Kingsley Amis, <i>The Waiter</i> is a <b>brilliantly exquisite</b> view into an uproariously vigilant life of service and protocol. In Faldbakken’s skilled hands, a mordant, lonely waiter in a declining restaurant becomes a raw, scrupulous force, powering <b>one of the most purely entertaining novels I've read in years</b>. <b>This book is a meal you won’t want to finish.</b>"
