The Reunion at Herb's Cafe
by Dan Jenkins




Overview -
And what a reunion it is Dan Jenkins reunites many of the most memorable and irascible characters from his most memorable and hilarious novels--starting with Semi-Tough. Billy Clyde Puckett, Shake Tiller, T. J. Lambert, Barbara Jane Bookman, Big Ed Bookman, Slick Henderson, Juanita Hutchins, Doris Steadman--the list goes on, and they're all packin' heat. It all begins when Herb's Caf --modeled after a Fort Worth landmark renowned for its chicken-fried steak--goes up for sale after Herb's death and the establishment's disastrous sequel as a trendy restaurant featuring outrageous nouvelle cuisine. Tommy Earl Bruner buys the place, rehires most of the old staff, and invites all its former denizens to Fort Worth for a grand celebration. The uproarious outcome could only have been dreamed up by comic mastermind Dan Jenkins.
This is a special commemorative edition of Dan Jenkins's last novel, including a foreword by Tom Brokaw and an afterword by Sally Jenkins.
