The Readers' Forum is the lively book discussion group of the Cranford Public Library. New members are always welcome! In "Last Night at the Lobster," Manny DeLeon must navigate his last day of work. With only four shopping days left until Christmas, he must convince his near-mutinous restaurant staff to politely serve the final onslaught of hungry retirees, lunatics, and holiday office parties. All the while, he's wondering how to handle the waitress he's still in love with, his pregnant girlfriend at home, and the perfect present he still needs to buy.
