Drinks Before Dinner

A novel by

The long-unavailable work by one of America's most eminent writers.

Drinks Before Dinner, called "witty and provocative" by the New York Times, is E.L. Doctorow's only play. A tour-de-force of language and ideas concerning the individual's role in and response to contemporary America, Drinks Before Dinner revolves around a dinner party for the economically privileged.

As Doctorow writes in his introduction, "[This play] deals in general statements about the most common circumstances of our lives, the numbers of us, the cars we drive, the television we watch, the cities we live in, our contraception and our armaments, and our underlying sense of the apocalypse. . . ."
