Synopsis:
From the incomparable Anne Tyler, a wise, gently humorous, and deeply compassionate novel about a schoolteacher, who has been forced to retire at sixty-one, coming to terms with the final phase of his life.

Liam Pennywell, who set out to be a philosopher and ended up teaching fifth grade, never much liked the job at that run-down private school, so early retirement doesn’t bother him. But he is troubled by his inability to remember anything about the first night that he moved into his new, spare, and efficient condominium on the outskirts of Baltimore. All he knows when he wakes up the next day in the hospital is that his head is sore and bandaged.

His effort to recover the moments of his life that have been stolen from him leads him on an unexpected detour. What he needs is someone who can do the remembering for him. What he gets is—well, something quite different.

We all know a Liam. In fact, there may be a little of Liam in each of us. Which is why Anne Tyler’s lovely novel resonates so deeply.

Book Description: Random House Large Print, 2010. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Praise for Anne Tylers Noahs Compass Everyone loves Anne Tyler . . . and her 18th novel will doubtless supply another reason. -San Francisco Chronicle Noahs Compass is immensely readable. It displays many of Tylers finest qualities: her sharp observation of humanity, her wry comedy; the luminous accuracy of her descriptions . . . Hers is a fine-grained art, whose comedy could easily coarsen into the self-consciously quirky. If it does not, this is because her surprises are rooted in character: it is human nature that she evidently finds infinitely fascinating and surprising, with its constantly unforeseeable capacity for change . . . [A] novel by Anne Tyler is cause for celebration. -Caroline Moore, The Sunday Telegraph Tyler reveals, with unobtrusive mastery, the disconcerting patchwork of comedy and pathos that marks all our lives. -Michael Dirda, The Wall Street Journal Dazzling . . . A beautifully subtle book, an elegant contemplation of what it means to be happy. -Elizabeth Day, The Observer, UK Fired from his job, Liam Pennywell moves into a small apartment and wakes up the next morning in the hospital with head injuries he cant explain. What turns out to have been an attack by a thief leads to unexpected grace, as Liam is forced to engage more deeply with his family and with a woman who finds him irresistible. - More magazine Pure pleasure -Helen W. Mallon, Philadelphia Inquirer From the Hardcover edition. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0739328646
