Last Night at the Lobster Reviews
"Small but not slight, the novel is a concise, poignant portrait of a man on the verge of losing himself." - Publishers Weekly.
"He offers no political message, merely the reminder that blue-collar lives are as charged with moral quandaries and professional difficulties as those of their better-dressed, more affluent fellow Americans. Very low-key, but haunting and quietly provocative." - Kirkus Reviews.
"Starred Review. O'Nan's tenth novel (after The Good Wife) demonstrates once again why the author is known as the 'bard of the working class.'.... This slice-of-life novel is funny, poignant, and exquisitely rendered." - Library Journal.
