Review

As exquisitely observed and quietly brilliant as the rest of Tyler’s fiction — Joanna Briscoe ―
Guardian

Anne Tyler draws a comedy that is not so much brilliant as luminous – its observant sharpness sweetened by a generous understanding of human fallibility — Jane Shilling ―
Daily Telegraph

Noah’s Compass is immensely readable. It displays many of Tyler’s finest qualities: her sharp observation of humanity, her wry comedy; the luminous accuracy of her descriptions… a novel by Anne Tyler is cause for celebration — Caroline Moore ―
Sunday Telegraph

Anne Tyler is a novelist who has elevated pitch-perfect observation of everyday detail into an art form… a beautifully subtle book, an elegant contemplation of what it means to be happy and the consequences of a defensive withdrawal from other people — Elizabeth Day ―
Observer

One of my favourite authors, one of the very few I rush out to buy in hardback. — Craig Brown ―
Mail on Sunday
