From the Back Cover

WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY THE AUTHOR

'Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant is a book to be settled into fully, tomorrow be damned. Funny, heart-hammering, wise' New York Times

When Pearl Tull's husband, Beck, abandons her she pours her energies into preserving normality. Only gradually do her three children realise their father is gone for good. Now, as Pearl lies on her deathbed, the impact of Beck's abrupt departure unspools: on Cody who can't overcome his anger, on mild Ezra who must always keep the peace, and on bright, errant Jenny. And so the secrets, memories and anguish of the Tull family begin to surface.

'Tyler is not merely good, but wickedly good' John Updike
