Thirty-four year old Arden Glass has a perfect Manhattan life-style. With a dream job, gorgeous apartment and the freedom to do what she likes, when she likes, it seems she's got it made. But under the veneer of perfection, Arden's emotional reality lies hidden - even from herself. Thanks to a childhood of dinner-table analysis from her psychotherapist parents - the Thought Police - her deepest self sleeps behind a carefully-constructed defensive barrier. In her role as a prominent advice columnist and radio show host Arden spends her days skimming across the surface of other people's problems without ever noticing her own. Until one day a letter arrives which begins to crack through her ideal exterior into the barrier beneath. Little by little Arden is forced to confront the ghosts of her past, and answer some uncomfortable questions about her parents, her friends, and herself. 'Dinner with the Thought Police' is a story about betrayal, about the nature of forgiveness, and about how long we have to do penance for the mistakes we make.show more
