A NovelBook - 2001 | 1st U.S. ed.
A group of friends and lovers gather together on a snowy evening in a small New England college town. But this will be no ordinary dinner party. For the host, Sean Farrell, has learned that he is dying of lung cancer. This night could be his grand finale. As food and drink flow, secrets are exposed, tragedies bared, and truths uncovered. Yet there is wit and laughter and hope, too, in this deftly written tale from a writer whose prose is as vivid as her insight into the human condition is wise.
