About this title
Dinner for Two is a feisty, irreverent novel about a fifty-something professor and his dinner dates with a female student. Jack Burns is currently dating Jessica Fontaine, an English major, who is mesmerized by the notorious professor's extraordinary tales of drunken debauchery, chronic drug addiction, crimes of robbery as the "Speedy Bandit," and his wild adventures in exotic countries like searching for the opium-addled "Flat Man" in the heart of Mexico. Jessica finds out his sister thinks she is a character in a Bob Dylan song, and all the men in his family are alcoholic, and all the women are crazy.Jessica believes she's discovered a wealth of material to write her own short stories based on Jack's life. But things get complicated because Jack is holding back a deeply guarded secret that he dare not tell Jessica.Readers will be drawn into these two people's lives as each new dinner brings more disturbing surprises and new twists and turns in Jack and Jessica's relationship.About the Author:
