One of my favorite contemporary writers, Michael Chabon, never wrote a book with this particular title, but I had fun supposing the possibility. He writes in a quirky, imaginative style that highlights eccentric behavior in odd circumstances. His prose is filled with sharp metaphors and poignant turns of phrase. I think it would be more than interesting if he told the story of a pensioner, a Holocaust survivor, ending his days in coastal Maine where he is visited by old acquaintances anxious to get in the last word.
If you're not familiar with Chabon's work, may I recommend "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay", "Wonder Boys" and "The Yiddish Policemen's Union".
I'm always a bit envious of those who read my favorite books for the first time because I miss the thrill of discovery that awaits new fans.
