Prepare to plunge into the drug-fuelled whirlwind of lost souls that occupy the Imperial Diner. You can’t help but get lost in the lives of these characters as author Mimi Pond transports us to the heart of 1970’s Oakland and introduces us to her colourful cast. Marge, our creatively repressed waitress narrator, painfully makes her way out of toxic relationships, and moves from lost drug-addled years to a path of creative fulfilment and self-worth. The book is a fictionalised version of Pond’s life, a creator whose impact in television and comics is greatly over-looked, including writing the first episode of The Simpsons, as well as stints on Pee Wee's Playhouse and Designing Women.
