Publisher's Summary

Through every family run memories that bind it together - despite everything. The Tulls of Baltimore are 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 it, secrets.

A classic novel from one of America's greatest living novelists, now available as an audiobook.

©1982 Anne Tyler (P)2014 Audible, Inc., 2014. Published in the UK by Random House Audiobooks

    "Tyler's own favourite"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Brilliant novel well read and characterised.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant?

    None of the characters were drawn as simplistically black or white, from motivations to action. I listened to the book and went from liking to disliking each person in turns. Ultimately, I finished the book and felt it was well rounded. Tyler's writing was perceptive and powerful.


    What about Suzanne Toren’s performance did you like?

    Suzanne characterised the children and Pearl so well.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book was very touching and the ending was unexpected but not contrived.


    Any additional comments?

    Tyler's best novel.

    "Download failure"

    I had nearly finished this audio book, when it cut off, saying that there'd been a failure in downloading the book. Even though I followed the instructions, I couldn't redownload it and I'm left feeling miffed.
