From the Publisher:
A volume of thirteen interrelated stories follows a theme of how a longing for friendship leads to the establishment and loss of new intimacies, in a collection inspired by seven short stories that originally appeared in the "New Yorker" that features a series of dinner parties through which a teacher is gradually accepted by new acquaintances.
Annotation:
After decades of silence since her last book (the novel, HER FIRST AMERICAN) Lore Segal has returned with a series of linked and nearly-perfect short-stories concerning the lives of 13 intellectuals who work at a Connecticut think tank. The vanities, tribulations, love, philosophy, and the somehow fascinating minutiae of their lives come to full flower in the kitchen of the think tank's director, Leslie Shakespeare.

Praise

"Filled with all the pomp and depressed glory of a modern-day GREAT GATSBY...[Lore] Segal exhibits a rare insight into the human character that is at once humbling and shamelessly enjoyable to behold." (starred review) 03/26/2007

"[Lore] Segal's crystalline prose elevates even the most banal workaday details into art." 04/20/2007
