'A book that embodies what's best in us.' - Stephen KingWashington Post Best Book of the Year,2017 San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of the Year, 2017Entertainment Weekly Best Book of the Year,2017The Red Lobster chain restaurant perched in the far corner of a run-down American mall hasn't been making its numbers and has pulled the plug.

But manager Manny DeLeon still needs to navigate a tricky last shift with a near-mutinous staff and the final onslaught of hungry retirees, lunatics, and office parties.

All the while, Manny wondering how to handle the waitress he's still in love with, what to do about his pregnant girlfriend, and how to find the Christmas 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 a American cult classic and a masterpiece of precision and empathy.
