MEDIA REVIEWS
Magnificent * Observer *
Deliciously funny and sharply observed * Guardian *
Wise and funny...a multidimensional exploration of what it means to belong, not only to a family but also to a nation * Sunday Times *
Out of this everyday material she spins gold: stories so achingly truthful, so achingly funny, so sad and so real that you can only marvel -- Elizabeth Buchan * Daily Mail *
Anne Tyler draws a comedy that is not so much brilliant as luminous - its observant sharpness sweetened by a generous understanding of human fallibility * Sunday Telegraph *
