Barnaby Gaitlin has less in life than he once had. His ex-wife Natalie left him and their native Baltimore several years ago, taking their baby daughter Opal with her. He acquired an unalterably fixed position as the black sheep of the family. And this family isn't one where black sheep are tolerated. The Gaitlins are rich and worthy, supposedly guided by their own special angel to do the right thing...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Tyler is a masterly writer whose love stories make you think as well as feel." -- Sebastian Faulks
"I was bowled over...I finished the book wishing it had been twice as long" -- Jeremy Paxman
"I can think of no other writer whose novels I look forward to with such gleeful anticipation. A Patchwork Planet is her fourteenth book, but were it for fortieth, it would not be enough for me... A delight from beginning to end" * Observer *
"Anne Tyler is inventive, funny and wise. Her fiction is magically alive to the quirks and coincidences of fate... [A Patchwork Planet] is charming, readable, and more full of touching and humane observations than many other novels you will read this year" * Guardian *
"A Patchwork Planet is thoroughly enjoyable...from this most responsive novel" * Sunday Times *
