"Beautiful . . . funny, heart-hammering, wise . . . superb entertainment."--The New York Times "A book that should join those few that every literate person will have to read."--The Boston Globe "A novelist who knows what a proper story is . . . [Tyler is] not only a good and artful writer, but a wise one as well."--Newsweek "Anne Tyler is surely one of the most satisfying novelists working in America today."--Chicago Tribune "In her ninth novel she has arrived at a new level of power."--John Updike, The New Yorker "Marvelous, astringent, hilarious, [and] strewn with the banana peels of love."--Cosmopolitan
