About the book:

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

Pearl Tull is nearing the end of her life but not of her memory. It was a Sunday night in 1944 when her husband left the little row house on Baltimores Calvert Street, abandoning Pearl to raise their three children alone: Jenny, high-spirited and determined, nurturing to strangers but distant to those she loves; the older son, Cody, a wild and incorrigible youth possessed by the lure of power and money; and sweet, clumsy Ezra, Pearls favorite, who never stops yearning for the perfect family that could never be his own.

Now Pearl and her three grown children have gathered together againwith anger, hope, and a beautiful, harsh, and dazzling story to tell.

A novelist who knows what a proper story is . . . [Tyler is] not only a good and artful writer, but a wise one as well.

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.
