Review

"Family sagas have such an endless appeal that whenever one meets a really good one, like Anne Tyler's Searching for Caleb, one wonders why anyone bothers to write a different form of novel" -- Auberon Waugh "Anne Tyler is a writer whose special gift is to convey the richness, strangeness and unpredicability of seemingly everyday lives" Sunday Telegraph "Strange and enchanting" The Times
