Ladies' lunch

and other stories
Lore Segal
Book - 2023

"Five close friends in their 90s meet, as they have for decades, for their monthly 'ladies lunch', to puzzle, and laugh at, the enigmas and affronts of aging. When one of their number is placed unhappily in a home the others conspire to spring her. Returning to her group of erudite, sharp-minded nonagenarians in Upper Manhattan offering startling insights into friendship and mortality. In the book's Other Stories, Segal includes tales from her acclaimed and prizewinning oeuvre to illuminate the hinterland of her characters - one of whom, like her, was a Kindertransport refugee. Beautifully crafted and profound, these stories distill the spirit of one of America's great authors to show us what a long life might bring."--Publisher.
