  • "Beautifully observed... Effortlessly brilliant"

    Daily Telegraph
  • "One of her very best"

    Mail on Sunday
  • "Superb... Beautifully conceived, masterfully executed... Out of the emotional confusions spawned by dislocated, dysfunctional families, Anne Tyler has produced - yet again - a scintillating comedy of manners"

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "Like all great writers, Tyler creates her own world...she is that rare being: a writer so good that she lets you forget it. If you're one of the few who's yet to discover her, don't waste any more time: this ranks among her best"

    Daily Mail
  • "Tyler, of the fresh, almost conversational prose, sharp dialogue and all too much human truth, really is one of the wisest and most perceptive observers crafting fiction as life"
