Caleb Peck vanished in 1912, a voluntary refugee from an all-embracing Peckness of the Pecks. Sixty-one years later his half brother Daniel is still on trial, helped by his grand-daughter Justine, a character cursed with a Peckish necessity to see every side of a question. The moving search for the family's deepest roots, from the ragtime era at the end of the last century to small town America in the mid seventies is a haunting story about growing up and breaking away, rebellion and acceptance.

From the Back Cover:

From the Pulitzer prize-winning author of Breathing Lessons and The Accidental Tourist

Ranging from the ragtime era to small-town America in the seventies, Searching for Caleb is a moving quest for a family’s deepest roots – and a haunting story of growing up and breaking away, acceptance and rebellion.

‘Family sagas have such an endless appeal that whenever one meets a really good one, like Anne Tyler’s Searching for Caleb, one wonders why anybody bothers to write a different form of novel’ Auberon Waugh

‘Anne Tyler is a writer whose special gift is to convey the richness, strangeness and unpredictability of seemingly everyday lives’ Sunday Telegraph

From the Inside Flap:

and true, dazzling and wise...It has an astounding confidence, depth and range...A wonderful, wonderful novel."

THE BOSTON GLOBE

Duncan Peck has a fascination for randomness and is always taking his family on the move. His wife, Justine, is a fortune teller who can't remember the past. Her grandfather, Daniel, longs to find the brother who walked out of his life in 1912, with nothing more than a fiddle in his hand. All three are taking journeys that lead back to the family's deepest roots...to a place where rebellion and acceptance have the haunting power to merge into one....
