When Dorothy came back from the dead, it seemed to Aaron that some people simply didn't notice. The accident that killed Dorothy - involving an oak tree, a sun porch and some elusive biscuits - leaves Aaron bereft and the house a wreck. As those around him fuss and flap and bring him casserole after casserole, Aaron ploughs on. But then Dorothy starts to materialize in the oddest places. At first, she only comes for a short while, leaving Aaron longing for more. Gradually she stays for longer, and as they talk, they also bicker and the cracks that were present in their perfectly ordinary marriage start to reappear...

A near flawless novel of love and loss ... exquisitely poignant but unsentimental -- Rosemary Goring Sunday Herald This novel's great achievement is to capture the tensions and subtleties of a married life cut short... I read it virtually in one sitting, but that's a fairly common experience with Anne Tyler books... I didn't want it to end. Which is also a fairly common Tyler thing -- Viv Groskop Independent on Sunday Richer and more alive than the best work almost any other writer is producing -- Cressida Connolly Daily Telegraph This is what Tyler does better than almost any contemporary writer. She peers at the forgotten areas of the everyday, the bits that are hard to pinpoint... She looks at people -- at life -- from the inside out. -- Lucy Atkins Sunday Times She's a master storyteller and inventor of character -- Vanessa Berridge Daily Express

Book Description:

An Anne Tyler gem: a story about love, about marriage, about two ordinary people so intertwined they cannot be separated - even by death ...
