A novella, really, packaged as a book. I don't really know why I read this but it caught my eye at the library. I don't have a lot of interest in contemporary realist fiction but I did like the idea that this book chronicled the final business day of a Red Lobster in Connecticut. And it was an okay book. Faint praise, I know, but that's all I can give this one. It got its details right (i.e. the author seemed to know what it's like to run a chain restaurant) but that was about it.
