No one does family like Anne Tyler does family. Are the Battistas her most appealing yet?

About the Author

Anne Tyler is the author of twenty bestselling novels. Her most recent, A Spool of Blue Thread, was a Sunday Times bestseller and shortlisted for both the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction and the Man Booker Prize. She has won the Pulitzer Prize and the Sunday Times Award for Literary Excellence, which recognises a lifetime's achievement in books, as well as being nominated by Roddy Doyle and Nick Hornby as 'the greatest novelist writing in English'. Vinegar Girl sees Anne Tyler going behind the scenes of one of Shakespeare's most controversial yet enduring (Kiss Me Kate, 10 Things I Hate About You) plays- 'You know how sometimes a friend will tell you something that happened to her, and you think wait, there must be more to it than that, I'm sure there's another side to this. Well, that's how I've always felt about The Taming of the Shrew.'

Reviews

"It's knockabout comedy at its best, genuinely laugh-out-loud funny and, indeed, may be her funniest book to date" -- John Harding * Daily Mail * "The worst wedding in history ... vintage Anne Tyler" -- Ann Treneman * The Times * "It's every subtle shade of funny, heart-breaking and ultimately life-affirming" * Grazia * "Funny, thought-provoking, essential" * The Sunday Telegraph (Stella) * "Delightful, ingenious and convincing... Anyone who values good writing and the intelligent observation and depiction of how people feel, think and speak will enjoy it too" -- Allan Massie * Scotsman *
