Author shortlisted for the Man Booker International Prize 2011.
One of Erica James' favourite books.
After a terrible family tragedy Ian Bedloe seeks guidance at the aptly named Church of the Second Chance. For the next 20 years he tries to make amends for the things that happened to his family. Intricate story lines and characters seem to effortlessly flow together and the uplifting ending makes this a brilliant family drama.
August 2009 Guest Editor Erica James on ANNE TYLER
Similarly Anne Tyler’s novels deal with the every day ups and downs of relationships and family life. She has a wonderful knack for creating totally believable but wholly ordinary characters to whom we can all relate. Nobody does domestic drama better than Anne Tyler and she is the standard to which I aspire!
