Anne Tyler's novel, A Spool of Blue Thread, follows the Whitshank family over eras as they live in Baltimore. They are a normal family, though each person can be eccentric in their own ways. The family members love and look after one another, but jealousy, competition, and gossip still surface from time to time.
There are two stories in the Whitshank family that are regularly retold. The main story is that of Junior Whitshank, Red's dad and the founder of Whitshank Construction. He constructed a home for the Brill family, and he put a lot of effort into its design. In his mind, it was his home, and he gave careful consideration to each point of interest. Later, an opportunity emerged for Junior to purchase the house back from the Brills, and he took it. He moved his wife, Linnie Mae Inman Whitshank, and their son and daughter, Red and Merrick, into the house.
