A Spool of Blue Thread: by Anne Tyler | Conversation Starters
A Brief Look Inside:
A Spool of Blue Thread features a typical family settled for a couple of generations in a house built by their grandfather. While they appear to be happy and united to outsiders, cracks gradually develop in the unity of the family. As we probe even further, it is shown that the family never had the kind of background people thought. In short, appearances can be deceiving, and families find a way to work despite all the problems they face. The underlying message of the book is that families can be defined by their individual members, but also by all the joys, sorrows, quirkiness, and events that take place within them.
