Someone having a special birthday asked that anyone who wanted to give her/him a gift at a birthday party, give her their favorite book. Not one they thought she would like, but the one they liked the best--the one that meant the most to them. What book would you choose?
My choice would be Stewart O'Nan's LAST NIGHT AT THE LOBSTER.
