Delicious but never indulgent, sweet with just the right amount of bitter, Rebecca Serle's The Dinner List is a romance for our times. Bon appetit! A Bustle Book Club Selection "I have five words for Rebecca Serle's The Dinner List : wistful, delicious, romantic, magical, love." --Gabrielle Zevin, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry and Young Jane Young "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 novel, The Dinner List , a story imbued with the same delightful magical realism as One Day , and the life-changing romance of Me Before You . 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.

display_description"We've all played the game: Which five people, living or dead, would you like to have dinner with? But what if that dinner was to actually happen? When Sabrina Nielsen arrives at her thirtieth-birthday dinner to meet her best friend, she finds at the table some unexpected guests, among them her favorite professor from college, Audrey Hepburn, and ... her ex, Tobias. After almost a decade-long love affair with Tobias, Sabrina is at a crossroads much more significant than turning thirty. The New York life she always anticipated for herself, and that she worked hard for, doesn't appear to be in her future. Her best friend has moved on to motherhood, her family might as well be strangers, and marriage is as far off as it ever has been. While the wine is poured, appetizers are served, and dinner table conversation begins, it becomes clear that there's a reason these six people have been gathered together. As Rebecca Serle masterfully traces Sabrina and Tobias's relationship -- from their first meeting in college to navigating the treacherous terrains of their twenties -- The Dinner List grapples with the highs and lows of first love, and the unexpected detours on the road to finding your own happily ever after. Sweet with just the right amount of bitter, The Dinner List is a triumph of imagination, and a romance for our time. Bon appeĢtit."--Dust jacket.
