"The thirteen interrelated stories of Shakespeare's Kitchen, several of which appeared in The New Yorker, are about the longing for friendship, how we achieve new intimacies for ourselves, and how slowly, inexplicably, we can lose them." "Ilka Weisz has accepted a junior position at the Concordance Institute, a Connecticut think tank, but leaves her New York circle of friends reluctantly. After the comedy of her struggle to meet new people, Ilka comes to embrace, and be embraced by, a new set of acquaintances, including the institute's director, Leslie Shakespeare, and his wife, Eliza. Through a series of memorable dinner parties, afternoon picnics, and Sunday brunches, Segal evokes the subtle humor of the outsider's loneliness, the comfort and charm of familiar companionship, the bliss of being in love, and the strangeness of our behavior in the face of other people's deaths."--BOOK JACKET.
