Clyde Edgerton. Lunch at the Piccadilly. Chapel Hill: Algonquin, 2003.

At the heart of this book is the relationship between Carl Turnage, a middle-aged bachelor, and his Aunt Lil, but much of the novel is given to a lively group portrait of Lil and her friends at the Rosehaven Convalescence Center, a nursing home in the fictional eastern North Carolina town of Listre. Listre has been the setting of several of Edgerton’s books.
