賦予家庭一雙眼睛和耳朵,生動不已,彷彿你我都置身其中,重現文藝復興時期夫妻關係中男女平等還是男尊女卑的問題,這真是個大哉問啊,熱鬧背後蘊藏著一種哲學意味,到底是誰改造了脾氣暴躁的主角呢?發出會心的微笑,也發人深思。對生活、愛情、老化、婚姻、悲傷,和意想不到的快樂,都有著深刻的描寫,見解更豐富,更動人。

'You can't get around Kate Battista as easily as all that'. Kate Battista is feeling stuck. How did she end up running house and home for her eccentric scientist father and uppity, pretty younger sister Bunny? Plus, she's always in trouble at work - her pre-school charges adore her, but the adults don't always appreciate her unusual opinions and forthright manner. Dr Battista has other problems. After years out in the academic wilderness, he is on the verge of a breakthrough. His research could help millions. There's only one problem: his brilliant young lab assistant, Pyotr, is about to be deported. And without Pyotr...When Dr Battista cooks up an outrageous plan that will enable Pyotr to stay in the country, he's relying - as usual - on Kate to help him. Kate is furious: this time he's really asking too much. But will she be able to resist the two men's touchingly ludicrous campaign to win her round? Anne Tyler's retelling of The Taming of the Shrew asks whether a thoroughly modern, independent woman like Kate would ever sacrifice herself for a man. The answer is as individual, off-beat and funny as Kate herself.
