Description

Captivating BBC radio adaptations of three of Anne Tyler's bestselling novels

Award-winning author Anne Tyler is loved worldwide for her fiction exploring the intricacies of marriage and domesticity. These three acclaimed books, each set in Baltimore, describe the small triumphs and tragedies of everyday American family life, as relationships are made and broken, and families come together, drift apart, hurt and heal each other.

Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant (Tracks 1 and 2)
Abandoned by her salesman husband, Pearl Tull attempts to keep her family together - but her anger and fierce maternal energy has damaging effects on her three children.

Ladder of Years (Tracks 3 and 4)
An unexpected romantic encounter in the grocery aisle is the beginning of a new adventure for homely Delia Grinstead, leading her to make a sudden, impulsive change in her life.

The Amateur Marriage (Tracks 5 and 6)
We follow the turbulent relationship of Michael and Pauline Anton over sixty years, from their whirlwind romance in 1941, to marriage, parenthood and beyond.

Multi-layered and universal, with details that ring sharply true and characters that are both recognisable and entertaining, these three dramatisations feature a distinguished cast including Barbara Barnes, Lorelei King and Nathan Osgood.
