WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY THE AUTHOR

When Pearl Tull's husband, Beck, abandons her she pours her energies into preserving normality. Only gradually do her three children realise their father is gone for good. Now, as Pearl lies on her deathbed, the impact of Beck's abrupt departure unspools- on Cody who can't overcome his anger, on mild Ezra who must always keep the peace, and on bright, errant Jenny. And so the secrets, memories and anguish of the Tull family begin to surface.

Review

Her fiction has strength of vision, originality, freshness, unconquerable humor. This new novel delighted me - perhaps her best so far. New York Times A novelist who knows what a proper story is ... [Tyler is] not only a good and artful writer, but a wise one as well Newsweek Excellently done; the minutiae of domestic landscapes, the lunatic irrationality of family quarrels, the torments of sibling rivalry Sunday Telegraph In her ninth novel she has arrived at a new level of power New Yorker The charm of an Anne Tyler novel lies in the clarity of her prose and the wisdom of her observations, in her fine ear for the 'clamor' of family.
