Description
"Through every family run memories which bind it together - despite everything. The Tulls of Baltimore are no exception. Abandoned by her salesman husband, Pearl is left to bring up her three children alone - Cody, a flawed devil, Ezra, a flawed saint, and Jenny, errant and passionate. Now as Pearl lies dying, stiffly encased in her pride and solitude, the past is unlocked and with it, secrets.

Reviews

"Her fiction has strength of vision, originality, freshness, unconquerable humor. This new novel delighted me - perhaps her best so far." New York Times "A novelist who knows what a proper story is ... [Tyler is] not only a good and artful writer, but a wise one as well" Newsweek "Excellently done; the minutiae of domestic landscapes, the lunatic irrationality of family quarrels, the torments of sibling rivalry" Sunday Telegraph "In her ninth novel she has arrived at a new level of power" New Yorker "Eudora Welty proclaimed: 'If I could have written the last sentence of Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant I'd have been happy the rest of my life'" -- Eudora Welty
