First published in the fall of 2013, THE DINNER was heralded as “a European GONE GIRL” byThe Wall Street Journal.  Skewering everything from parenting values to pretentious menus to political convictions, the narrative reveals the dark side of genteel society and asks what each of us would do in the face of unimaginable tragedy.
