The Dinner

Editorial reviews

The Dinner

With its propulsive forward momentum, cast of angry unsympathetic characters and interest in the consequences of sudden, startling outbursts of violence, The Dinner is reminiscent of recent bestseller, The Slap, whose author, Christos Tsiolkas, provides a glowing cover line.

It makes for a discomforting, absorbing read.

It is a well-paced and entertaining novel.

Minor cavils aside, this is the perfect undemanding, credible, terrifying beach read.
