The first collection of short stories from the critically acclaimed, prize winning author of To Rise Again at a Decent Hour.
Few writers encapsulate the deeply felt yearnings, heartbreaking absurdity, and redemptive humor of life quite like Joshua Ferris. Full of the keenly observed, mordant wit that characterizes his beloved, award-winning novels, the stories in THE DINNER PARTY are about people searching for answers in the aftermath of life's emotional fissures--those abrupt, sometimes violent, moments that change lives forever. From a disastrous gathering that exposes the cracks in a seemingly solid relationship, to a retired widower looking for connection in all the wrong places, to a man pathologically incapable of having a normal social interaction with his mover, these hilarious and profound stories confirm Ferris's stature as one of our most dazzingly talented contemporary authors.
