Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant Author:Anne Tyler A profoundly felt and deeply moving story about two brothers and a sister deserted by their father, raised by their angry mother, moving through through the calamities and exultations of their difficult youth into separate strategies for survival and finally into a shared humanity.
i'm not sure why I struggle so much with Ann Tyler's books, as they are loved by many, but they just leave me depressed. The whole family here is dysfunctional, and the mother was a raging tyrant whose cruelty turned me off from her first rage.
I didn't feel I had anything to learn here. No more Anne Tyler books for me.
