Description

"We've been waiting for an hour." That's what Audrey says. She states it with a little bit of an edge, her words just bordering on cursive. That's the thing I think first. Not: Audrey Hepburn is at my birthday dinner, but Audrey Hepburn is annoyed."

At one point or another, we've all been asked to name five people, living or dead, with whom we'd like to have dinner. Why do we choose the people we do? And what if that dinner was to actually happen? These are the questions Rebecca Serle contends with in her utterly captivating audiobook, The Dinner List.

When Sabrina arrives at her thirtieth birthday dinner she finds at the table not just her best friend, but also three significant people from her past, and well, Audrey Hepburn. As the appetizers are served, wine poured, and dinner table conversation begins, it becomes clear that there's a reason these six people have been gathered together.

Delicious but never indulgent, sweet with just the right amount of bitter, The Dinner List is a romance for our times. Bon appetit.

About the author

Rebecca Serle is a full-time writer, which means she gets to wear pajamas to work. She went to the University of Southern California, then got her MFA from the New School in NYC. (She likes New York much more than LA, but don’t tell anyone that.) Rebecca loves shiny hair, coffee, yoga, and pretending to be British. She, too, experienced heartbreak once. It worked out okay, though, because she turned the experience into a book.

    Everyone has had the question posed to them as to whom they would want to have at their dinner, whether they be alive or dead. This is so perfect to be able to actually see this wish come to life and makes the reader think about what theirs could be like if they were so lucky to get the same opportunity. So many things can be assumed by the people that are chosen and that is such an amazing thing to ponder both for the reader to Sabrina, as well as the reader when they think of who they would pick. I think I will end up changing my mind on who I will pick because of what happens with Sabrina's birthday dinner. My dad died yesterday and I think I needed to read this now. It gave me the approval to be angry at what he missed out on by not being there and I can still be able to forgive him for me. This book is such a great way to look at life, being an adult and forgiving yourself.
