A Bustle Book Club Selection

I have five words for Rebecca Serles The Dinner List: wistful, delicious, romantic, magical, love.
Gabrielle Zevin, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry and Young Jane Young

Weve been waiting for an hour. Thats what Audrey says. She states it with a little bit of an edge, her words just bordering on cursive. Thats the thing I think first. Not: Audrey Hepburn is at my birthday dinner, but Audrey Hepburn is annoyed.

At one point or another, weve all been asked to name five people, living or dead, with whom wed like to have dinner. Why do we choose the people we do? And what if that dinner was to actually happen? These are the questions Rebecca Serle contends with in her utterly captivating novel, The Dinner List, a story imbued with the same delightful magical realism as One Day, and the life-changing romance of Me Before You.

When Sabrina arrives at her thirtieth birthday dinner she finds at the table not just her best friend, but also three significant people from her past, and well, Audrey Hepburn. As the appetizers are served, wine poured, and dinner table conversation begins, it becomes clear that theres a reason these six people have been gathered together.

Praise For…


Imagine that you could gather the people youve loved - dead or alive- at one table, for one night, with a chance to heal yourself once and for all. The Dinner List is a heartbreakingly romantic book framed by such an evening. Its Serles unflinching investigation into the triumph and failings of love that makes this book one of a kind. A touch magic, a touch tragic, and absolutely compelling from beginning to end.
Stephanie Danler, New York Times bestselling author of Sweetbitter

"I read The Dinner List in a single day, unable to tear myself away from this unconventional dinner party. Rebecca Serle draws you in with this clever and delightful story and then (when you least expect it) offers up some of the sharpest insights on first loves, friendships and family. This book is completely original and wildly entertaining."
Jennifer Close, New York Times bestselling author of Girls in White Dresses and The Hopefuls
