It's a summer's evening in Amsterdam, and two couples meet at a fashionable restaurant for dinner. Between mouthfuls of food and over the polite scrapings of cutlery, the conversation remains a gentle hum of polite discourse--the banality of work, the triviality of the holidays. But behind the empty words, terrible things need to be said, and with every forced smile and every new course, the knives are being sharpened. Tautly written, incredibly gripping, and told by an unforgettable narrator, The Dinner promises to be the topic of countless dinner party debates.

This is a great book-enough comedy and angles to keep you gobbling it up. Koch writes in an engaging and insightful way, keeps you following along in the characters train of thought(s) as he covers all kinds of issues. very entertaining.

***** STARS "Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." thus begins Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina". So begins Mr. Koch who then sets out to prove that the self-described happy family of the protagonist is very different from other happy families. Two brothers and their wives go out to dinner. I was prepared for a literate book of table talk - Wow was this narrative a surprise. I highly recommend this book + I also highly recommend that you begin the book with as little knowledge of the plot as possible. Just let a superb author lead you down an amazing garden path!!!!!
