Diner Etiquette contains ten short stories, all set in New Jersey, dealing with a variety of characters and experiences. The collection is an exercise in genre study as well, or at least in genre subversion. The mob story, the post 9/11 fable, quasi-magic realism, a novella, all are contained within. Despite an overarching literary conceit of genre exploration, the dramatic invention of the collection deals more with long-form minimalism and a desire to thoroughly and realistically explore what it's like to live and work and exist in contemporary America in the shadow of New York City.
