I really enjoy Anne Tyler's writing - and have another copy of this one in my permanent collection. Hopefully a new reader will find and enjoy this one!

Description...
'Through every family run memories which bind it together - despite everything. The Tulls of Baltimore were no exception. Abandoned by her salesman husband, Pearl is left to bring up her three children alone - Cody, a flawed devil, Ezra, a flawed saint, and Jenny, errant and passionate. Now as Pearl lies dying, stiffly encased in her pride and solitude, the past is unlocked and with its secrets.'

An interesting take on family realtionships and memories. Pearl can be erratic in her moods and how she relates to her children, and they are all a bit flawed because of it, and their absent father who they never mention. When Pearl dies Ezra invites him to Pearl's funeral and dinner at the Homesick restaurant afterwards.
