Anne Tyler 
Summary
<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER </b><br /><br />“Funny, heart-hammering, wise…An extremely beautiful book.” —<i>The New York Times</i><br /><br />“A Book that should join those few that every literate person will have to read.” —<i>The Boston Globe<br /></i><br /> 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. <br /> 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.<br /><br /> “[In <i>Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant</i> Tyler] has arrived at a new level of power.” —John Updike, <i>The New Yorker<br /></i><br /> “Marvelous, astringent, hilarious, [and] strewn with the banana peels of love.” —<i>Cosmopolitan</i>
