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 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A deeply moving novel about how we work, how we live, and how we get to the next day with our spirits intact. If there was ever a book that embodies what’s best in us, it’s Stewart O’Nan’s Last Night at the Lobster.” Stephen King
“O’Nan’s empathy for his characters is one of his great gifts as a novelist, and it is an impressive achievement that Manny’s misplaced affection for Red Lobster is not risible, but tragic…O’Nan is also a bitter realist.” New York Times
“A delightful heartbreaker of a novel…Exquisite.” USA Today
“O’Nan crafts a perfectly observed slice of working-class life.” Entertainment Weekly
“A masterful portrait.” Washington Post Book World
“Touching…Small but not slight, the novel is a concise, poignant portrait of a man on the verge of losing himself.” Publishers Weekly
“[Last Night at the Lobster] demonstrates once again why the author is known as the ‘bard of the working class’…This slice-of-life novel is funny, poignant, and exquisitely rendered.” Library Journal
“A rueful mood piece from prolific, eclectic O’Nan about the closing of a chain restaurant…Very low-key, but haunting and quietly provocative.” Kirkus Reviews
