Description

A novel that talks about belonging and otherness, about insiders and outsiders, pride and prejudice, young love and unexpected old love, families and the impossibility of ever getting it right, about striving for connection and goodness against all the odds.

Préface
From the Pulitzer prize-winning Sunday Times bestseller Anne Tyler. Digging to America is now re-jacketed along with the rest of Tyler's books in striking new backlist style

In 1989 she won the Pulitzer Prize for Breathing Lessons; in 1994 she was nominated by Roddy Doyle and Nick Hornby as 'the greatest novelist writing in English'; in 2012 she received the Sunday Times Award for Literary Excellence; and in 2015 A Spool of Blue Thread was a Sunday Times bestseller and was shortlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction and the Man Booker Prize.



Texte du rabat

Glowing reviews greeted Anne Tyler's latest beautifully crafted novel exploring the frailties and foibles of humanity - what it means to belong to a family and to a country. Two Korean babies are adopted by Baltimore families; each year they celebrate 'Arrival Day' together, with a succession of ever-more elaborate parties. Competitiveness, misunderstanding and toe-curlingly funny moments unfurl in a novel with an apparently small domestic canvas and subtly large themes.

Résumé
SHORTLISTED FOR THE ORANGE PRIZE

Friday August 15th, 1997. Two tiny Korean babies are delivered to two very different Baltimore families. Every year, on the anniversary of 'Arrival Day' the two families celebrate together, with more and more elaborately competitive parties, as little Susan and Jin-ho take roots and become American.
