Last Night at the Lobster

Last Night at the Lobster - Stewart O'Nan Quite a cathartic read if you've ever worked in the restaurant business, especially a chain restaurant. This reads more like a short story, not just because of the short length, but because of the voice, the real-time events, as if it's a snapshot of life. I've known a few "Mannys" myself. O'Nan is an amazing writer.

Side note: As I mentioned in my status line, I always wondered, as I would pass by the Red Lobster in Newington, NH, who goes to a Red Lobster on the coast of New England? Seriously? Anyway, it's no longer there.
