About this book
A multi-layered novel spanning three generations from this hugely talented author, her first in three years. A superb evocation of America at the start of World War II. "A brilliant writer of emotionally sophisticated novels, funny, tragic, wise" Lynne Truss, "Independent"
From the incomparable Anne Tyler, a rich and compelling novel, spanning three generations, about a mismatched marriage - and its consequences. Michael and Pauline seemed like the perfect couple - young, good-looking, made for each other.
