2 A Spool of Blue Thread

2 A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler

Paperback £7.99

Staff Recommendation: Anne Tyler has the knack of creating ordinary people living, for the most part, ordinary lives and producing an interesting story. Tyler reinforces what we should all know, i.e. that family history has a way of being altered in the retelling. The themes of wanting to belong, wanting to be special, sibling rivalry and class rivalry are woven together rather wonderfully.
