The Last Night at the Ritz Paperback / softback

Part of the Nancy Pearl's Book Lust Rediscoveries series


Brazen, candid, and always willing to take chances, the unnamed and not entirely trustworthy narrator of The Last Night at the Ritz celebrates her birthday with three old and dear friends. Two of them, Gay and Len, are a long-married couple and her best friends from college. The third, Wes, was once her lover.

Organizing a luncheon at Bostons esteemed Ritz Carltonan old favorite of the groupsthe narrator expects the occasion will be an excellent chance to catch up with her friends and enjoy each others company. But almost immediately upon arriving at the hotel, she senses things are different, though she cant quite put her finger on whats wrong. Even the Ritz has changed, no longer displaying the lionits trademark symbol of hospitalityon its ashtrays.

As the afternoon gives way to evening and as the drinks flow, the past and present intrude upon the festivities and the atmosphere turns somber. Before the night is through, truths and secrets slip out that will change their relationships forever.

Back in print for the first time in a generation, The Last Night at the Ritz, a masterfully written novel of friendship and love and the ways we deceive each other and ourselves, is quite simply unforgettable.
