Loss and Decline in the Novels of Anne Tyler
2006 0-7734-5788-7
This study of Anne Tyler’s sixteen novels engages in the debate over whether her literary reputation is a lasting one and whether her view of contemporary American society is ultimately a conservative or liberal one. This work suggests that her novels will continue to be read not just because they are so well written, but because they offer readers an alternative view of American life.
