This study of Anne Tyler's sixteen novels debates 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.

"... Tyler's characters are perpetually 'slipping down' economically, socially, and even physically, but they grow in confidence, happiness and sometimes joy. Tyler's insights into what makes a meaningful life, Dr. Adams persuades readers, should secure her place in the literary cannon..." - Professor Caren Town, Georgia Southern University"
