Nighthawks the iconic diner – in lieu of review

Nighthawks - aka the diner painting

Nighthawks is a 1942 painting by Edward Hopper that portrays people sitting in a downtown diner late at night. It is considered Hopper’s most famous painting, as well as one of the most recognizable in American art… via Nighthawks – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

One of my favourite stories in Stars – an anthology edited by Janis Ian and Mike Resnick – is built around the picture you can see here.  I really recommend Stars – request it from your library or buy it from Janis Ian’s website!
