Anne Tyler

New Zealand Woman’s Weekly - - READING CORNER -

FOR BEAU­TI­FUL WRIT­ING

Gen­tly un­fold­ing tales about ev­ery­day peo­ple are Anne Tyler’s spe­cial­ity. She writes of fam­i­lies and mar­riages, and about un­re­mark­able lives, but be­cause she is such a won­der­ful sto­ry­teller, there is noth­ing or­di­nary about her nov­els. Start with a re­cent one, A Spool of Blue Thread, which is about four gen­er­a­tions of a fam­ily who live in Bal­ti­more. It’s wise, truthful and com­pletely won­der­ful.
