• As exquisitely observed and quietly brilliant as the rest of Tyler's fiction

    Joanna Briscoe, Guardian
  • Anne Tyler draws a comedy that is not so much brilliant as luminous - its observant sharpness sweetened by a generous understanding of human fallibility

    Jane Shilling, Daily Telegraph
  • Noah's Compass is immensely readable. It displays many of Tyler's finest qualities: her sharp observation of humanity, her wry comedy; the luminous accuracy of her descriptions... a novel by Anne Tyler is cause for celebration

    Caroline Moore, Sunday Telegraph
  • Anne Tyler is a novelist who has elevated pitch-perfect observation of everyday detail into an art form... a beautifully subtle book, an elegant contemplation of what it means to be happy and the consequences of a defensive withdrawal from other people

    Elizabeth Day, Observer
  • One of my favourite authors, one of the very few I rush out to buy in hardback.

    Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday
