Perched in the far corner of a run-down New England mall, the Red Lobster 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 only four shopping days left until Christmas, Manny must convince his near-mutinous staff to hunker down and serve the final onslaught of hungry retirees, lunatics, and holiday office parties. All the while, he's wondering how to handle the waitress he's still in love with, his pregnant girlfriend at home, and where to find the present that will make everything better.

Last Night at the Lobster is a poignant yet redemptive look at what a man does when he discovers that his best might not be good enough.

    " More a short story than a novel, it's a little bit of nothing about a restaurant closing down, the end of relationships and resolution of petty disagreements. It's a quick read, which is perhaps the best I can say of it. "

    " So many good reviews for Stewart O'Nan's books, especially this one, yet I have not been able to finish one yet. I find them slow-moving and they do not keep my interest. I tried Lobster first since it got so many good reviews. Second, I tried The Good Wife and again could not finish it. I am sticking it out with Wish You Were Here but it is not that great, I am just curious about how the characters resolve their situations. "

    " An incredible realistic look at the lives of people working in a chain restarant. A good read "
