Breathing Lessons by Anne Tyler

This novel covers the events of a day in the life of Maggie Moran, wife to Ira for twenty-eight years and mother of two disappointing children. Tyler shows us all there is to know about a marriage: the expectations; the disappointments; the way children can create storms in a marriage; and the way that everything – and nothing – changes.
Anne Tyler was born in Minneapolis. Breathing Lessons won a Pulitzer Prize.
