Description
“Beautiful . . . funny, heart-hammering, wise . . . superb entertainment.#148; #150;The New York Times “A book that should join those few that every literate person will have to read.#148; #150;The Boston Globe Pearl Tull is nearing the end of her life but not of her memory. It was a Sunday night in 1944 when her husband left the little row house on Baltimore#146;s Calvert Street, abandoning Pearl to raise their three children alone: Jenny, high-spirited and determined, nurturing to strangers but distant to those she loves; the older son, Cody, a wild and incorrigible youth possessed by the lure of power and money; and sweet, clumsy Ezra, Pearl#146;s favorite, who never stops yearning for the perfect family that could never be his own. Now Pearl and her three grown children have gathered together again#150;with anger, hope, and a beautiful, harsh, and dazzling story to tell. “A novelist who knows what a proper story is . . . [Tyler is] not only a good and artful writer, but a wise one as well.#148; #150;Newsweek “Anne Tyler is surely one of the most satisfying novelists working in America today.#148; #150;Chicago Tribune “In her ninth novel she has arrived at a new level of power.#148; #150;John Updike, The New Yorker “Marvelous, astringent, hilarious, [and] strewn with the banana peels of love.#148; #150;Cosmopolitan
