I just love Ann Tyler. I did find myself wondering if she had written this as a period piece and it was not until the end I realised it was one of her early books. It is a conceit on my part to think that the portrayal of complex emotions belongs to modern times. Unspoken family secrets are timeless in their ubiquity. As is the dilemma of leaving your family behind to make your own way in the world. Ann Tyler captures so well the risks we take in moving on and the impulse to remain as we are however unsatisfactory. On the way we meet some entertaining characters. It's a thoroughly enjoyable read.
