"Her best book yet" -- Roddy Doyle "Every scene breathes with intimacy. Lifelikeness almost lifts the characters off the page. Ladder of Years ruefully contemplates the unhaltable passage of time. But, scintillating with joie de vivre, it also offers an intensely appealing way of passing it" Sunday Times "Anne Tyler's novels have three qualities that make them special: they are funny, they are sad, they are intelligent" -- Nick Hornby "Dialogue top-rate, people alive to their fingertips, places as real as next door - you don't get a finer comedy of manners than this" Mail on Sunday
