Book: A patchwork planet

Author: Anne Tyler

Details: (c) Anne Tyler 1998; Pub Penguin Books 1999; ISBN 0-14-027552-5

Verdict: A patchwork planet is a thought-provoking character piece.

Reasons for reading it: darcydodo's mom introduced me to Anne Tyler and I really enjoy her writing.

How it came into my hands: Second hand book shop in Berkeley. Anne Tyler seems to turn up quite a lot second hand, particularly in America. I get the impression she's somewhat an American equivalent of Joanna Trollope over here: people will buy anything she writes, but read it once and then give it away.
