  • "Beautifully observed... Effortlessly brilliant"

    Daily 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
  • "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
  • "Her touch, whether comic, wry or tragic, is as subtle as goose down... An insight bordering on genius... 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"

    Irish Times
  • "One of her very best"
