Summary

The charming, and not entirely trustworthy, unnamed narrator of The Last Night at the Ritz invites three friends to join her for lunch at the elegant Ritz-Carlton in Boston to celebrate her birthday. Two of them, Gay and Len, are a long-married couple and her best friends from college. The third, Wes, was once her lover.

As the afternoon gives way to evening and as the drinks flow, the past and present intrude upon the festivities and the atmosphere turns somber. Before the night is through, truths and secrets slip out that will change their relationships forever.

Back in print for the first time in a generation, The Last Night at the Ritz, a masterfully written novel of friendship and love and the ways we deceive each other and ourselves, is quite simply unforgettable.

This is simply perfect!

Janet Metzger reads this timeless novel at perfect pitch. The book itself is of course a wonderful peace of social study with insights into peoples motivations and reasoning with such clever honesty that it is as current now as it was then. The forword is personal and gives an intimate angle to the Janet's reason for liking the book
