Dishwasher is the true story of a man on a mission: to clean dirty dishes professionally in every state in America. Part adventure, part parody, and part miraculous journey of self-discovery, it is the unforgettable account of Pete Jordan's transformation from itinerant seeker into "Dishwasher Pete"--unlikely folk hero, writer, publisher of his own cult zine, and the ultimate professional dish dog--and how he gave it all up for love.
