Last Night at the Lobster

by Stewart O'Nan

It's Manny's last night at the Lobster, the Red Lobster. Spend one day with the conscientious restaurant manager and his motley crew at the soon-to-be defunct seafood eatery.

His final shift will include the usual no-shows, a raucous office party, a restaurant regular or two, and even a blizzard. The characters are ordinary, but O'Nan makes them so real--you can almost smell the seafood chowder.

Quiet and quick, but worth every moment. Savor this yummy story!
