Last Night at the Lobster - Stewart O'Nan This ia high three, nearly a four. While I was engaged in the story, it was such a small story, I couldn't help thinking that if a woman had written this story, it would have been relegated to women's lit while it's literary fiction because a man wrote it. Perhaps it wasn't fair to read this book through that lens, but I am a women author, whose books have been bypassed because the backdrop wasn't grand enough.
