The Dinner Date
The Dinner Date: An eShort Story | Cathi Hanauer
7 posts
From the New York Times bestselling editor of The Bitch in the House and the author of the novels Sweet Ruin and Gone comes an original short story about a young doctor whose wife has just left him and the woman whose chance with him has finally come. Set in Manhattan, it showcases Cathi Hanauer's talent for capturing the nuances of modern love. Just as the main character, Adam, is devastated by his wife's very recent abandonment, he finds himself drawn to the attractive co-worker he knows has a crush on him. It's anguish and excitement all at once and brilliantly told. Originally written nearly twenty years ago, it eventually partially evolved into Gone, Hanauer's incredibly compelling new novel about a middle-aged woman whose husband drives the babysitter home one nightand simply doesnt come back.

Thanks for the tag, @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

1) This one is tough 🤔 My Grandma Squeeze (her nickname) bc she died before I was born & I would love to meet her and have her meet LO. Jenny Lawson bc she's hysterical and would make me laugh the entire time. JK Rowling bc she's a genius. Gordon Ramsey so he could cook the dinner. And... I think that's really it!


vkois88 2) Another tough one. Prob JK Rowling bc she came from nothing and created this amazing, literally magical universe for everyone to dive into. Or Jenny Lawson bc she's a bad@$$ b 😂😂
3) @craftylikefox @Avanders @BookwormAHN

I'm late to the party, but I loved everyone's lists of authors they'd invite to a dinner party, so I'm adding mine! These are women whose lives fascinate me almost as much as their writing.

Maya Angelou
Toni Morrison
Margaret Atwood
Cheryl Strayed
Sylvia Plath
Harper Lee
Octavia Butler
Sandra Cisneros
Jeanette Walls

Post #BookClub dinner! Outback edition. Main course: Victoria's Fillet mignon with asparagus for me, garlic butter fillet medallions with broccoli for @MrBook . So long since we had steak. Yum! 😋 Thankful to the fam for these gift cards! They were burning a hole in our pockets. There aren't any Outbacks by us! We went to use the gift cards one day, only to discover that the closest Outback was 60 miles away!

Cinfhen Yum 😋 2y
