Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant
When I grow up I want to be Anne Tyler.
How have I never read this before?
I have Digging to America but I'm saving it for our next holiday.
I borrowed The Lovely Bones from the library today, along with Maria's War by Amy Witting (I recently read After Cynthia and loved it. Isobel on the way to the corner shop is one of my favourite novels of all time.) She has a lovely restrained style and glorious characters; richly pyschological books. The kind of books that make you feel like you've had a weekend of good conversation, good company, good wine, good food.
