Review quote

"Funny, serious, touching, zany, delightful, revealing...a triumph of perception" * Harper's * "Anne Tyler has won herself a devoted following. Rightly so: her novels are beautifully controlled, witty, subtle, with an undercurrent of human warmth" * Sunday Telegraph * "She is a writer who gets to the heart of the matter without being glib, and cleverly reveals the extraordinary in seemingly ordinary lives" * Daily Mail * "Anne Tyler's touch is deft, her perceptions keen, her ear for speech phenomenal, her people triumphantly alive... Only a rarely talented novelist could have written this fine book" * New York Times * "Her fiction is a quiet, gentle reminder of the goodness to be found in most ordinary lives" * Observer *
