Last Last Orders?is the third part of Arno Camenicsh's award-winning trilogy set in the Swiss Alps. It is the final evening in the Helvetia bar, and the regulars sit around one last time to drink and talk before the bar closes forever. Characters familiar to book two of the trilogy - villagers past and present, dead and alive - gather at the table as tales from the world they inhabit, both tragic and hilarious, are shared and relished. Everything's coming to an end but as long as someone is still speaking, the last glass will not empty. Camenisch's work is touching, hilarious, harrowing, and immediate.
