Maggie Moran and her husband, Ira, are driving from Baltimore to Deer Lick, Pennsylvania, for the funeral of Max, the late husband of Maggie’s best friend, Serena. On the road, with many detours, her marriage is slowly laid bare. We unravel the story from, first, Maggie’s, then Ira’s and finally Maggie’s point of view.

What can possibly be said about Anne Tyler that has not been said and more eloquently? They say you should write about things you know and Ms.Tyler knows life. Not just all the ordinary things that happen to people but the under belly side of life as well.She never sugar coats any event
but tells it like is/ No apologies is what we get. The ordinary becomes sublime in her hands This book is required reading if you really want to know l
life. Kudos Anne Tyler.
I read this book many years ago, and thought it was too realistic for me, even a little dark. But it’s not! Life has a way of confusing and confronting us as Maggie was. I chuckled and nodded and empathized with her, having lived some of those moments myself. Kudos to Anne Tyler, for combining insight with humor!
I am in the process of reading every Pulitzer Prize winning book of fiction from 1917 to the present. i am reading them in order. This book won the prize in 1989. Some books are magnificent, some not so much. I would put this book somewhere near the middle of the pack. It was an easy read, and the characters were interesting, the story was good, and I found the book enjoyable. If you are looking for an easy reading enjoyable book, this is the one.
She captures the human condition. The good, the bad and the angst that comes with it. It is the story of our lives.
Great read. Made me laugh all the way through. She got the Pulitzer for this book because it happens to all of us.
A woman's journey to discover herself as she enters a new phase of life. Maggie wrestles with her efforts to create the family life she desires to avoid facing the realities of these relationship.
Slowly writer
Anne Tyler does an extraordinary job of bringing eccentric people into focus and loving them despite and because of their quirks.
Anne Tyler understands relationships so well & she knows how to create them in stories. Her characters are realistic & lovable because we recognize ourselves as we read. This book is another brilliant accomplishment!
