The Dining@Large reading group
So, let's do it. From time to time, anyone who wants to will join in a discussion of novel, memoirs, popular history, or what have you related to food and dining in general and the world of restaurants in particular. First up is Stewart O'Nan's Last Night at the Lobster. The book is widely available in paperback (for as little as ninety-nine cents!) and clocks in at a slim 160 pages.
Let's see, today is October 19. Why don't we give everyone until Thursday, November 4th to find the book and read it. Then, on that day, I'll open up a discussion thread for it.
I hope you like it as much this book as much as I did. If this goes well, I'll open up the selection process -- but for now, a little benevolent dictatorship seemed warranted.
