Featuring six never-before-published pieces, Lore Segals stunning new book evolved from seven short stories that originally appeared in The New Yorker (including the O. Henry Prize-winning The Reverse Bug).Ilka Weisz has accepted a teaching position at the Concordance Institute, a think tank in Connecticut, reluctantly leaving her New York circle of friends.

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 institutes director, Leslie Shakespeare, and his wife, Eliza. Through a series of memorable dinner parties, picnics, and Sunday brunches, Segal evokes the subtle drama and humor of the outsiders 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 peoples deaths.A magnificent and deeply moving work, Shakespeares Kitchen marks the long-awaited return of a writer at the height of her powers.
