The Red Lobster a restaurant in a suburb of New England hasn’t been making its numbers and is being shut down. All but six of the employees are going to be relocated to Olive Garden. They all however have to hunker down and get through one last day at the restaurant. Manny, the manager has his hands full dealing with persnickety patrons, unmotivated employees, and all kinds of personal problems. O’Nan takes this slice of life to construct an interesting and very real story.
Stewart O’Nan is an author whose writing keeps you wanting to read on because his characters are so interesting. He takes everyday situations and presents an interesting point of view. I truly appreciated the complexity of what it takes to run and manage a restaurant as demonstrated through Manny’s character.
