This was a favorite book in my 20s and certainly my most favorite of Anne Tyler's work. When I saw it had been made into an audio I was hesitant. Would it live up to my memories, was the reader good? I am pleasantly surprised. This is a great story. Anne Tyler was a forerunner of the many "wacky family" type fiction you see a lot of today, but I think it's done with more depth and feeling. This isn't as melancholy as many of her books. The characters are interesting and well drawn. Highly recc'd!

Another very good Anne Tyler novel that charts the complicated waters of family through her quirky characters. It's one of her starker novels, but I still found it very satisfying.
This is about the tenth of her books I have read, which may be good. Newcomers should check out the books she wrote in the 1980's (Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant, The Accidental Tourist) before moving backwards as I am now.
