Review:

"Wickedly good" ( John Updike)

"Her brilliance in capturing the ripples on the surface of family life gives her a claim to be the Jane Austen of our age" ( Allison Pearson, Daily Mail)

"Anne Tyler is inventive, funny and wise. Her fiction is magically alive to the quirks and coincidences of fate" ( Guardian)

"Funny and lyrical and true, exquisite in its details and ambitious in its design...rich...warm. The writer is not merely good, she is wickedly good" (John Updike)

"Miss Tyler never loses her control. She writes with virtuosity and perfect confidence, insight and compassion" ( The Times)
