The charming—and not entirely trustworthy—unnamed narrator of The Last Night at the Ritz invites three friends to join her for lunch at the elegant Ritz-Carlton in Boston to celebrate her birthday. Two of them, Gay and Len, are a long-married couple and her best friends from college. The third, Wes, was once her lover. 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.

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.

    " I think this is a great book to compare and contrast with Rules of Civility. I love the literary references and importance the written word is throughout the book. The characters are rich and unique yet trapped in their roles/time period too. A great book for discussion. "

    " They met in college. Doesn't everyone? Now, in middle age, they meet in the bar at the Ritz. One drinks Dubonnet, but the others drink for real as their intertwined histories are carefully revealed. Although the book was published 40 years ago, the deft descriptions of relationships, women's sexuality, and parenting still beg to be read aloud. "

    " I think I'd like to read this again. It's very cleverly written and I imagine I've missed things and it'd stand up to multiple readings. "
