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 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.

‘Anne Tyler is a writer whose special gift is to convey the richness, strangeness and unpredictability of seemingly everyday lives’ Sunday TelegraphFrom the Inside Flap:
and true, dazzling and wise...It has an astounding confidence, depth and range...A wonderful, wonderful novel."

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....
