Format: Paperback
Ed Grisamore captures the essence of a legendary Macon, Georgia-based institution in his new book, "There Is More Than One Way To Spell Wiener: The Story of Nu-Way." Nu-Way has been around since 1916, and since has carved out a cherished place in its many patrons' hearts. You literally cannot resist them once you've had one, and this book will help y'all understand some of the reasons why.

Besides the goodness of the dogs themselves, another thing worth mentioning is the many stories about the various ways Nu-Way's owners and employees have helped out the central Georgia area over the years. Nu-Way's many brushes with famous people was quite interesting as well, Oprah Winfrey actually cut two-and-a-half dogs when she was here a couple of years ago, and Lewis Grizzard loved them so much that he publicly touted Nu-Way as one of his favorite eating establishments.

In the end, if y'all haven't yet enjoyed a Nu-Way, then you need to come over to Macon, order two "all the way" with your drink of choice spiked with their famous flaky ice, and then settle back for some unparalleled culinary enjoyment. You'll learn, as I and many others have, that a Nu-Way truly is the Elvis of hot dogs...

A great story. I live in Macon, Georgia and know the Author. He gives many true stories about the people who started this unique Hot Dog Shop and the people who work there. Also he gives very interesting biographical information about those who really really LOVE NU WAY.

Ed Grisamore : "There is more than one way to spell WIENER ... The Story of Nu-Way"; Mercer University Press

Hot Dogs are more than just an American tradition - there are an American icon. And what better a way to start in looking at hot dogs and America than at the story of Nu-Way.

For more than 75 years, Nu-Way, which began in Macon, has given Maconites (and others who have traveled from all over the world) more than just tasty food and deliciousness with their hot dogs - it is given them a sense of pride, a sense of comfort and a sense of tradition.

And Ed Grisamore did quite well with writing the story that needs to be told.

For anyone who has eaten a Nu-Way hot dog should have a copy of the book in his or her library.

Nu Way wieners are renouned throughout the state of Georgia and other parts of the country. Some people who have heard of them stop by the store when passing through. Try one.

This book is interesting only if you have ever had a Nu-Way hotdog, and/or you grew up in the Middle Georgia area. I have had a couple thousand Nu-Way hotdogs in 66 years,
and I am from Macon. Folks who haven't had the Nu-Way experience probably would wonder what the fuss is about. But, as we say in the South, "if you don't know, I can't tell you". Grisamore does a good job with the research and story-telling, as usual.
