Description
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "Funny, heart-hammering, wise...An extremely beautiful book." -- The New York Times "A Book that should join those few that every literate person will have to read." -- The Boston Globe Abandoned by her wanderlusting husband, stoic Pearl raised her three children on her own. Now grown, the siblings are inextricably linked by their memories--some painful--which hold them together despite their differences. Hardened by life's disappointments, wealthy, charismatic Cody has turned cruel and envious. Thrice-married Jenny is errant and passionate. And Ezra, the flawed saint of the family, who stayed at home to look after his mother, runs a restaurant where he cooks what other people are homesick for, stubbornly yearning for the perfect family he never had. Now gathered during a time of loss, they will reluctantly unlock the shared secrets of their past and discover if what binds them together is stronger than what tears them apart. Soulful and redemptive--full of heartbreak and hope--this portrait of a family will remind you why Anne Tyler is one of the most beloved writers working today. "[In Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant Tyler] has arrived at a new level of power." --John Updike, The New Yorker "Marvelous, astringent, hilarious, [and] strewn with the banana peels of love." -- Cosmopolitan
