Editorial Reviews


"Her best novel" Guardian "Anne Tyler is a brilliant writer" Observer "A book to be settled into fully, tomorrow be damned. Funny, heart-hammering, wise...superb" New York Times Book Review "The most impressive American novelist of her generation" Sunday Telegraph "A classic of contemporary Americana...variously funny and horrifying and finally, quietly, terribly moving " Los Angeles Times

From the Publisher

I first read this book back in 1984, long before I was in the publishing business. I was traveling through Greece with a friend and our hotel had shelves of books that other guests had left behind and were free for the taking.. I picked up Dinner.... knowing absolutely nothing about it. What a wonderful surprise and discovery!. I felt I had never read anything quite like it.The characters were so real, so familiar that I felt I did actually know them. In fact, for weeks after I finished the book, I had dreams about Ezra, one of the characters in the book and the owner of the Homesick Restaurant. In the dreams, he was my brother and he was just as sweet and vulnerable as he was in the book. I never re-read books because I'm usually disappointed the second time around because the sense of newness and discovery is gone. But I did read Dinner.... again and loved it as much, and even found new things I hadn't noticed before. This novel is truly a classic.
