Publisher's Summary

Based on the characters and events touched on in the film The Last Days of Disco, Whit Stillman has created a funny poignant story about two estranged college friends coming to terms with their college days.

After attending a movie premiere in Manhattan, Jimmy and Des find themselves at the bar, Petrossian, confessing their mutual affection for Alice Kinnon, the failed socialite from their inner circle, and examining the subsequent collapse of their friendship. Filled with witty dialogue and the clarity that comes with alcohol, Cocktails at Petrossian reminds us that our past often remains in our present.

Chapter. 27

Let it be known to you dear readers that this is actually chapter 27 in the book The Last Days of Disco with Cocktails at Petrossian Afterwards. The narrator (Whit Stillman) says this but the description of this short audiobook doesn’t, so I figured it be best to let you know here in case you’re curious. Having said that, this is a delightful short story. And if you enjoy this you should absolutely search out Whit Stillman’s films and his other book Love and Friendship. Witty, funny, and delightfully entertaining. A+
