“A novel so real I kept expecting one of the characters to text me. A poignant, honest look at a single cataclysmic event and the changes, the growth, and the recoveries that follow. You will think about 'The Last Birthday Party' long after the final page.” - W. Bruce Cameron, #1 New York Times bestselling author of "A Dog’s Purpose" “Goldstein’s crackling wit makes his debut novel an absolute joy. His characters are wonderfully drawn; by the end they feel like old friends. Come for the frothy plot and zippy writing, stay for the heartfelt storytelling and deliciously satisfying ending. A refreshing and uplifting read, highly recommend!” - Susan Walter, author of "Good as Dead" "The adjectives 'hilarious' and 'painful' have never been so seamlessly married as they are in the pages of Gary Goldstein's new novel, 'The Last Birthday Party,' an achingly funny love letter to 'midlife' in all its anxiety, anguish, and awe. I loved it." - David Dean Bottrell, author of "Working Actor"
