"Ladies' Lunch" by Lore Segal Originally published in the February 27, 2017 issue of The New Yorker.
Seeing Lore Segal in the pages of The New Yorker when she’s 88 years old is a welcome sight. She’s been publishing, at the rate of one novel per decade (though she skipped the 1990s) for over fifty years. Her 2007 novel, Shakespeare’s Kitchen, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.
I myself have not read her work before, so I’m glad to have a chance to do so this week.
Please comment below and let us know how you felt about “Ladies’ Lunch.” I’m looking forward to the always lively discussion!
