One of Anne Tyler's best books. She gets the domestic relationship between this husband and wife just right. Lovely book.

We read this delightful Pulitzer Prize winner in our book club a few months ago and had one of our liveliest discussions ever!

And if you're an Anne Tyler fan, this one is a must!
