Back When We Were Grownups

I liked this book much better than the last book I read by Anne Tyler. The main character was less flighty and didn't get on my nerves. And so I could appreciate Tyler for her great eye for family interactions and dramas, for how our individual personalities can become invisible in some ways to our families, for how life can take you by surprise and how people often don't realize so many things about themselves.

A decent read, lovely prose, nothing shocking or incredible. A good way to spend the day.

I'll never forget the egg carton in this book. You know, she puts the shells back in the carton! My mind boggled that day, I can tell you.
