Anne Tyler was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1941 and grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina. She graduated at nineteen from Duke University and went on to do graduate work in Russian studies at Columbia University. Her eleventh novel Breathing Lessons, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1988.
Her most recent novel A Spool of Blue Thread is brimming with the luminous insight, humour and compassion that are Anne Tyler's hallmarks, this capacious novel takes us across three generations of the Whitshanks, their shared stories and long-held secrets, all the unguarded and richly lived moments that combine to define who and what they are as a family.
A Spool of Blue Thread made it into Cavan Library Service’s Summer Reading list and was enjoyed thoroughly by Cavan Reading Group members
