Of The Way Throughthe way through book Guys like Pete used to sleep on the couch Out for weeks at a time at the radical cooperative where I used to live sucking up our utilities and our space rarely or never kicking in money to help out because they were on a uest to FIND THEMSELVES while girls like me were y know surviving and all Things I liked Pete s hardcore research into dishwashing history was interesting and he s likely the only person who s ever bothered to do such research As aormer dishwasher I appreciated it Also Pete tells stories well He s not the greatest writer on earth but he has a good story That suffices in a book like thisThings I didn t like It did get a bit boring after awhile reading dish story after dish story after dish story
