Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A chance encounter between two families--the Donaldsons, and the Iranian-born Yasdans--at the Baltimore airport, as both couples await the arrival of an adopted daughter from Korea, prompts an examination about what it means to be an American while the lives of the two families intertwine over the years. Reader's Guide included. Reprint. 250,000 first printing.


Review:

"[Anne] Tyler's middle-class Baltimore suburb is a multicultural melting pot, with a lot of those lumpy bits that won't quite break down however much you stir....Anne Tyler is the goddess of domestic fiction."

Literary Review, May, 2006

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 206 x 132 mm. Brand New Book. Anne Tyler s richest, most deeply searching novel-a story about what it is to be an American, and about Iranian-born Maryam Yazdan, who, after 35 years in this country, must finally come to terms with her outsiderness. Two families, who would otherwise never have come together, meet by chance at the Baltimore airport - the Donaldsons, a very American couple, and the Yazdans, Maryam s fully assimilated son and his attractive Iranian wife. Each couple is awaiting the arrival of an adopted infant daughter from Korea. After the instant babies from distant Asia are delivered, Bitsy Donaldson impulsively invites the Yazdans to celebrate: an arrival party that from then on is repeated every year as the two families become more and more deeply intertwined. Even Maryam is drawn in - up to a point. When she finds herself being courted by Bitsy Donaldson s recently widowed father, all the values she cherishes - her traditions, her privacy, her otherness-are suddenly threatened. A luminous novel brimming with subtle, funny, and tender observations that immerse us in the challenges of both sides of the American story. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780345492340
