“Through sparse, evocative language, we experience the closing night at a Red Lobster restaurant in a rundown New England mall. The tension between his ordered and ethical business life, and his more complicated personal life, causes Manny DeLeon, the manager, great conflict. A superb novella that took me right back to the kitchens and tables of my waitress days.”
— Sally Landaal, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC

Description


The Red Lobster perched in the far corner of a run-down New England mall hasn?t been making its numbers and headquarters has pulled the plug. But manager Manny DeLeon still needs to navigate a tricky last shift with a near-mutinous staff. All the while, he?s wondering how to handle the waitress he?s still in love with, what to do about his pregnant girlfriend, and where to find the present that will make everything better.

Stewart O?Nan has been called ?the bard of the working class,? and Last Night at the Lobster is one of his most acclaimed works to date.
