Publisher's Summary

In Anne Tyler's most recent book, a family is created consisting of quirky, candid characters. The family, the Whitshanks, believes it is more contented and closer to each other than other families. However, Tyler reveals to her listeners how the Whitshank's beliefs are somewhat true; but yet false in others ways in the concluding aspects of her book. The book's core is based upon the manner in which family expresses love and does not express love to one another; as well as how the same patterns reappear from one generation to the next generation.

Listeners also learn that the Whitshanks, though unique, are truly ordinary, like all families. Anne Tyler is as brilliant and captivating as in the books she had previously written. Her easy-going character expansion, unemotional depiction of family life, and her vivid understanding of the psychology of parents and children, all combine to create lasting, breath-taking book. This analysis fills the gap, making you understand more while enhancing your book experience.
