A Patchwork Planet is thoroughly enjoyable...from this most responsive novel * Sunday Times * Anne Tyler is inventive, funny and wise. Her fiction is magically alive to the quirks and coincidences of fate... [A Patchwork Planet] is charming, readable, and more full of touching and humane observations than many other novels you will read this year * Guardian * I can think of no other writer whose novels I look forward to with such gleeful anticipation. A Patchwork Planet is her fourteenth book, but were it for fortieth, it would not be enough for me... A delight from beginning to end * Observer * I was bowled over...I finished the book wishing it had been twice as long -- Jeremy Paxman Tyler is a masterly writer whose love stories make you think as well as feel. -- Sebastian Faulks
