SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY PEOPLE AND USA TODAY NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Washington Post - NPR - Chicago Tribune - St. Louis Post-Dispatch - The Telegraph - BookPageAn act of literary enchantment . . . [Anne] Tyler remains among the best chroniclers of family life this country has ever produced.-The Washington PostIt was a beautiful, breezy, yellow-and-green afternoon. . . . This is how Abby Whitshank always describes the day she fell in love with Red in July 1959. The Whitshanks are one of those families that radiate an indefinable kind of specialness, but like all families, their stories reveal only part of the picture: Abby and Red and their four grown children have accumulated not only tender moments, laughter, and celebrations, but also jealousies, disappointments, and carefully guarded secrets. From Reds parents, newly arrived in Baltimore in the 1920s, to the grandchildren carrying the Whitshank legacy boisterously into the twenty-first century, here are four generations of lives unfolding in and around the sprawling, lovingly worn house that has always been their anchor.Praise for A Spool of Blue ThreadQuintessential Anne Tyler, as well as quintessential American comedy . . . [She] has a knack for turning sitcom situations into something far deeper and more moving.-The New York Times Book ReviewWell-crafted, utterly absorbing and compelling . . . probably the best novel you will read all year.-Chicago TribuneBy the end of this deeply beguiling novel, we come to know a reality entirely different from the one at the start.-O: The Oprah MagazineA miracle of sorts . . . tender, touching and funny . . . [an] understated masterpiece.-Associated PressVintage Anne Tyler . . . [The Whitshanks are] rendered with such immediacy and texture that they might be our next-door neighbors.-Los Angeles TimesMagic . . . You imagine these characters carrying on, muddling through, enduring the necessary sorrows and quiet joys of their lives somewhere beyond the page.-The Seattle TimesThe sort of novel thats hard to disentangle yourself from. Warm, charming and emotionally radiant, it surely must be counted as among Tylers best.-The Miami HeraldExploring [the] dichotomy-the imperfections that reside within a polished exterior-is Tylers specialty, and her latest generation-spanning work accomplishes just that, masterfully and monumentally.-ElleAmong her finest . . . Theres no novelist today who writes more insightfully (and often humorously) than Tyler does about the fictions and frictions of family life.-The Baltimore SunDeeply moving . . . Tylers innate sense of warmth and good humor permeates the novel.-The Dallas Morning NewsThe story of any family is told through the prism of time. And no storyteller compares to Tyler when it comes to unspooling those tales.-St. Louis Post-Dispatch

It's been said that nobody writes families better than Anne Tyler. Sadly this one just gave me the sense that she got lost somewhere along the way. As others have said, it really did 'unravel' - and there was no particular reason for it to be called 'A Spool of Blue Thread' as nothing really sewed this together.
