Pearl Tull is nearing the end of her life but not her memory. It was a Sunday night in 1944 when her husband left the little row house on Baltimore's Calvert Street, abandoning Pearl to raise their three children alone: Jenny, high-spirited and determined, nurturing to strangers but distant to those she loves; the oldest son, Cody, a wild and incorrigible youth possessed by the lure of power and money; and sweet and clumsy Ezra, Pearl's favorite, who never stops yearning for the "perfect" family that could never be his own. Now grown, they have gathered together again-with anger, with hope, and with a beautiful, harsh, and dazzling story to tell.… (mer)

I went into this novel with dread. I was expecting this book to hit a bit too close to home and maybe a little hard to swallow (mother death is always a hard one for me). To be honest, I have never read a novel by Anne Tyler and did not expect such incredible prose and vivid storytelling. This was a heartbreaking portrait of a flailing, damaged, and toxic American family doing their best (and as in life sometimes someone’s best just simply falls short). The heartbreaking, sad, and devastating moments of this novel felt both necessary and vital to the meaning of the story Tyler weaves in Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant (and weren’t the entire Tull family both homesick and in dire need of nourishment? Some of them literally starving?)

This is my first but certainly not my last Tyler novel. ( )

Very character driven. I gave it 3 CDs and tried a bit of the last.

First chapter the mother/wife was the narrator.

Second chapter was the eldest son. Offering his perspective of events.

Third chapter sounded like it was going to be the daughter's voice. I was bored with the other two perspectives so wasn't interested hearing it all again in another voice.
-------------------------

Not fond of the narrator's male voices. If anyone listened to the audiobook of Clan of the Cave Bear you'll know what I mean when I say her male voices sounded like Brun. I even looked up CotCB audiobook to see if they were the same narrator and they are not.

Okay, this is the second Anne Tyler book I've read in the past month, and I'm now officially a fan. Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant is the epitome of that classic reviewer's term, "keenly observed." Tyler captures so many small moments, so many poignant, true thoughts and interactions so well, that it made me ache for--and often identify with--just about every character in the story. Beautiful book. Loved it. ( )

People felt real. Good and bad moments. Sometimes, not all people are likeable. ( )

My first Anne Tyler but one of my favourite genres, the drama of the ordinary family. Plot is secondary in this genre, it's character, character,character and matriarch Pearl is a doozie. ( )

Every other year or so since 1964, loyal readers pick up their new Anne Tyler novel as they would buy a favored brand of sensible shoe. Each of her nine books is solidly constructed from authentic and durable materials. Yet traditional style and comfort do not necessarily mean dullness. Tyler's characters have character: quirks, odd angles of vision, colorful mean streaks and harmonic longings. They usually live in ordinary settings, like Baltimore, the author's current home, and do not seem to have been overly influenced by the 7 o'clock news. An issue in a Tyler novel is likely to mean a new child; a cause, the reason behind a malfunction in an appliance or a marriage.
