Dinner with Edward: The Story of an Unexpected Friendship by Isabel Vincent
Tuesday, November 1
In her memoir Dinner with Edward, award-winning journalist and author Isabel Vincent tells the story of the weekly gourmet dinners that Isabel shared with the nonagenarian father of one of her friends when she first moved to New York City. Both Edward and Isabel are at a crossroads. Edward has just lost his beloved wife of 69 years and Isabel is going through a difficult divorce. They meet in Edward’s Roosevelt Island apartment with its stunning views of the Queensboro Bridge and the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Over sublime dinners of Oysters Rockefeller and perfectly roasted chicken, Edward recites poetry and expounds on food and love.
Ms. Vincent is an investigative reporter for The New York Post, and the author of four other books, including Gilded Lily: Lily Safra, The Making of One of the World’s Wealthiest Widows, which is currently banned in Brazil.
Dinner with Edward is being translated into several languages, and has been optioned for a feature film by Donald Rosenfeld, the producer of Remains of the Day, Effie Gray and Tree of Life.
Books will be available for purchase and signing.
