AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'William Nott meets Vivien Edges one summer night at a party. He is the maitre d' at Bistro Franco. She is a student, a designer of sorts, and a bad waitress. She is also looking for a husband. 'Will you,' William asks a few hours later, 'do me the esteemed honour of becoming my wife?' Here begins a curious love story. She might be the woman of his dreams, if he had those sort of dreams. He might be the best waiter in town, but Franco's isn't his restaurant. There's a lot they don't know about each other. There are some things they may never find out.

'Set in a world of bistros and bars, smoke and mirrors, Martin Armiger's The Waiters is an irresistible comedy of manners, telling a tale of passion, style, appetite and intrigue.'
