From "We tried Tom's Burgers & Grill based on reviews on this site. Right on. Our omelets were exactly done to our individual orders, and our coffee cups never went dry. The biscuits were light, homemade, and tasty; the gravy perfect... A delightful homey kind of place, done in the 50s diner style and obviously a local favorite. Clean and well cared for, too..." - dtpegasus

Probation by Tom Mendicino (Publishers Weekly) A middle-aged married man whose indiscretion in a men's bathroom forces him to re-evaluate his chosen life becomes a surprisingly sympathetic narrator in this potent debut. When Andy Nocera is arrested at a public highway rest stop, his wife leaves him, prompted by her father, for whom Andy works. Resigned to putting his life back together, he moves home with his mother, recently diagnosed with cancer, and takes a job as a traveling salesman around which he schedules his court-ordered therapy with a stubborn Jesuit priest. Andy attempts to detangle his motivations for both getting married when his emotions lay elsewhere and settling for an existence as a dutiful son. Like a contemporary Ethan Frome, Mendicino's protagonist struggles to reconcile his desires with the expectations of the people around him, and despite the occasional melodramatic moment, sure-footed plotting keeps the narrative from lapsing into a confessional slump.
