Publisher Description

Screenplay by Eric Kraft, based on his novel. Matthew Barber, living in Boston, is vice-president of a toy company by day, but becomes Bertram W. Beath, restaurant reviewer, when the sun goes down. Reservations Recommended is a satire of the critical mind; a dark commentary on contemporary culture; a story of midlife crisis; a morality play; and a book that matches bleakness against humor, seasoned throughout with B. W. Beath’s hilariously acid reviews. We watch as Matthew Barber descends from a self-protective superiority into a species of madness, and into the dark night of the soul. • “A brilliant satire.” LA Life • “Scary.” Kirkus Reviews • “Shrewd, adroit, and spirited.” Donna Seaman, Booklist • “A moving urban fable.” Roger Harris, Newark Star Ledger • “A merciless sendup of contemporary American pretensions.’ Janice Harayda, Cleveland Plain Dealer • “Wonderfully readable . . . touching and intelligent.” Richard Gehr, The Village Voice
