Review: Clock Dance by Anne Tyler
Anne Tyler has a unique talent for writing about the inner lives of the kinds of people who go unnoticed in everyday life. Although she does her best with Willa, this novel does not hold up as well as some of her other works, such as Booker Prize nominated Redhead At the Side of the Road. With this one, the situation is just that little bit too implausible, the characters not quite developed enough, in spite of the fact that the first three chapters feel overlong and a tad dull. Still, the idea is a lovely one and I enjoyed the dynamic between Willa, Denise and Cheryl.
Not Tyler's best, but pleasant enough.
