Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: In what is perhaps her richest and most deeply searching novel, Pulitzer-prize winner Anne Tyler gives us a story brimming with observations that cast a penetrating light on the American way as seen from two perspectives. It looks at the promises and perils of the American Dream and the knotty, layered relationship that can develop between native-born Americans and more recent immigrants intent on making their way through the often baffling byways of the New World. Description in Spanish: Los Yazdan no pueden tener hijos y deciden adoptar una nina coreana. Lo mismo les sucede a los Donaldson. Aunque las raices iranies de una familia contrastan con el espiritu americano de la otra, ambas entablaran una relacion de amistad en torno a las dos ninas. Con la sensibilidad, agudeza y cercania que caracterizan su prosa, Anne Tyler, ganadora del Premio Pulitzer, demuestra una vez mas en esta novela su extraordinaria capacidad para descubrir las grietas invisibles de la vida cotidiana, y saca a la luz los problemas culturales que puede tener una sociedad aparentemente perfecta.
