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! It seemed as though each of us could relate to at least one of the characters - either we had known someone who was just like a character or (even funnier) we could see something of ourselves in one of the characters!

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

I really enjoyed this book. It was a pretty fast read, especially for a Pulitzer Prize winner. There are touching moments and hilarious moments as well. It's about a woman who is a wife, mother, grandmother & friend. She is reflective about her many roles in life as she is travelling to a friend's husband's funeral with her husband, all the while she is trying to develop a plan to reunite her son & estranged daughter-in-law. She has some adventures & eventually comes to accept herself and her life as it is and that is really satisfying.
