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!

As I remember it, this book was an excursion into a relationship between two people that are married, set against a trip as a perfect parallel. You know how conversations happen in a car on a long drive or stopped for gas or lunch that never seem to take place at home? I remember this being a sweet journey.
