ldquo;Reading [Tyler], one is constantly being startles by such moments: gestures, words, wrinkles of thought and feeling that are at once revelatory and exactly right.” —The New York Times

“Funny and lyric and true, exquisite in its details and ambitious in its design.” —John Updike, The New Yorker

Texte du rabat

An early triumph from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Breathing Lessons and Saint Maybe. Duncan Peck is a restless man, constantly moving his family. His wife Justine is a fortune teller. Her grandfather is on a quest for the brother he lost in 1912. Soon, all three of them will journey back to the family's deepest roots. Previous publisher: Avon paperback.

"Magic and true, dazzling and wise...It has an astounding confidence, depth and range...A wonderful, wonderful novel."—The Boston Globe

Through the syncopated rhythms of the ragtime era to the thumping, rocking beats of the 1970s, generations of Pecks have maintained a determined steadiness. Adamantly middle class—Peck-proud, as the family slogan goes—they are quick to sweep under the rug those members who do not live up to their standards. Maybe that’s why Caleb Peck took off with his violincello as a boy? Sixty years later, his brother Daniel is still wondering. No longer willing to live without answers, he turns to his daughter-in-law, Justine, another Peck family eccentric. A studied tarot card reader, Justine comes across one message over and over in the cards: change is coming. With Daniel’s help, she’s hoping to find the courage to embrace whatever happens next.

An unlikely pair struggling against a stifling family, Daniel and Justine believe they’ll find freedom in just the right mix of magic, music, and mystery.
