On this week’s Earful Tower podcast episode, host Oliver Gee is joined by Edward Chisholm whose new book “A Waiter in Paris” is taking the world by storm. The book has been hailed by critics as a spellbinding debut novel, and there’s no doubt it’s an intoxicating look at a different side Paris.
“A Waiter in Paris” dares readers to learn the ugly truth about dining in Paris. From Edward’s own experience as a Parisian waiter, he shares his observations of the hidden underbelly of bistros, the corruption of money-hungry management, and the bonds formed between waiters as they battle being overworked and underpaid, while dreaming of the day they can leave the ruthless world of waiting.
Edward joined the Earful Tower in the grand Belle Époque brasserie Bofinger to discuss the book, waiting in Paris, and the myths about working in French restaurants.
