For all you literary types out there reading this, don't get your hopes up. Don't feel as though you can settle into this book with a glass of Merlot in front of a blazing fire, with smooth jazz playing in the background. Nope, it ain't that type of book, folks. It's not even for that beer-drinking, going to the demolition derby on a Saturday night whilst the din of classic rock is blaring through the speakers of your pickup truck kind of crowd, either. I suppose it's somewhere in between the two. Willie Willette is quick to say he is not a professional writer, nor does he hold a degree in English or Journalism. He's just an average small-town guy with a high school diploma and a slight case of dyslexia. Every Wednesday for nearly a decade, Willie has met his buddy Hans for Big Lunch Wednesdays, a weekly ritual where the two sit around and swap stories of the joys, pains, triumphs, and embarrassments of growing up. Within these pages Willette provides the reader with a round of "appetizers," selections of his favorite stories set to whet your appetite. Told in a humorous and heartwarming style, Big Lunch Wednesday is sure to delight you, and bring back memories of your own childhood.
