INTERESTING AND (MARGINALLY) NOSTALGIC

[This is what comes of choosing something to read late at night, and when you're hungry for an In-N-Out burger. Also, this title was available for <> (no wait listing) download from the L.A. County Public Library’s eBook / AudioBook website: http://overdrive.colapublib.org/482D7...]

In the book, ‘In-N-Out Burger,’ the author, Stacy Perman quite matter-of-factly relates the interesting history (warts and all) of the family that founded and owns the In-N-Out chain of hamburger stands, mostly in California with a few in Nevada, Arizona and Utah. (But I really never did get a sense of this story as a “behind-the-counter” look.)

As it happens, though, the story of In-N-Out parallels the history of some of the most exciting times ever in Southern California—from the late ’40s to the present.

Recommendation: Lots of steak with little sizzle; but an enjoyable / interesting enough read. I wouldn't put it on the top of your ‘To Read’ shelf… but you might keep it in the background for a rainy day.

“In-N-Out: That’s what a hamburger is all about.”
