Reviews

  • Bursting with vitality and variety, it's a tour de force . . . fizzes with the qualities – characters who almost leap off the page with authenticity, speech and body language wonderfully caught – that, for more than half a century, have won her such admiration and affection

    Peter Kemp, Sunday Times
  • As always, Tyler is a magician, able to conjure up, in a handful of sentences, such endlessly complicated things as the comical messiness of family life . . . You finish her novels feeling closer to life, and closer to other people

    Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday
  • Almost unbearably poignant . . . a moving and perceptive story about one man’s inability to connect with others and his gradual move towards greater self-fulfilment

    Charlotte Heathcote, Sunday Express
  • Anne Tyler has the ability to take the minutiae of characters’ lives and say wise things about the human condition that other writers can only dream of

    Stylist
  • Tyler has every gift a great novelist needs: intent observation, empathy and language both direct and surprising. She has unembarrassed goodness as well. In this time of snark, preening, sub-tweeting and the showy torment of characters, we could use more Tyler

    Amy Bloom, New York Times
