Journal Entry 1 by MrSamsa from Tucson, Arizona USA on Tuesday, May 11, 2021

From Booklist:
Danny is a junior at Yale in 1980, a product of a New Jersey public high school who is pitting his smarts (both street and classroom) against those of the products of Skull and Bones, Choate, and Groton. During semester breaks, Danny works with his father on the family business, Roach Coach, a lunch wagon that services construction sites and factories while trying to avoid the Lunch Monsters, a Mob-run catering business that's muscling out the little guys. He juggles several girlfriends, including a secretary in his hometown, a sweet but confused literature student who is having an affair with a professor, and a New Haven high-school girl who works with him in the student cafeteria. The hometown girl turns up pregnant but lets Danny off the hook by getting engaged to an ex-boyfriend. Danny never has a cathartic moment or even learns much from his experiences, so it's hard to describe this as a coming-of-age novel. But it's fast-paced, funny, and provides valuable insights into an era that somehow seems more than a single generation past.
