More than simply a golf story, "Last Call" portrays a round of golf played by, Sylvie, a middle-aged woman whose father lays terminally ill in a hospital bed two hours away. Since she and her father have always shared a love of the game, she decides to call him from the course, and then keep her cell phone on, talking to him as she plays, relating each shot and challenge in a language of love all their own. Her father strains to hear her voice through a blanket of pain, and both of them are swept up in warm and sometimes difficult memories.

A meditation on father-daughter love, and the life lessons golf offers, "Last Call" is described by Roland Merullo, as one of the best pieces of writing he's done in thirty years at his desk.

Roland Merullo is the author of 14 books including the novels Breakfast with Buddha, a nominee for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, In Revere, In Those Days, a Booklist Editors' Choice, Revere Beach Boulevard, named as one of New England's top 100 Essential Books by the Boston Globe, The Talk Funny Girl, a finalist for the New England Book Award and the memoir, Revere Beach Elegy, winner of the Massachusetts Book Award for non fiction.
