Clock Dance Read & download Ï 2 Willa Drake can count on one hand the defining moments of her life when she was eleven and her mother disappeared being proposed to at twenty one the accident that would make her a widow at forty one At each of these moments Willa ended up on a path laid out for her by othersSo when she receives a phone ca. This is the Anne Tyler that I have enjoyed for so many years I was drawn to a seemingly ordinary character I couldn t help but root for couldn t help but want something for than she has been able to manage for herself as I was back to Tyler s beloved Balti with a cast of uirky characters I fell for Once again she illustrates that a story doesn t have to be about anything earth shattering to the world at large to be meaningful and full of heart and to make us think that life is always full of possibilitiesIn 1967 eleven year old Willa Drake doesn t have a perfect home life with a volatile moody mother and a passive father Fast forward to 1977 when she is twenty one and we first meet Derek the guy she ll marry someone full of himself anxious for her to give up her plans for him and she does Fast forward to 1997 when she s forty one and a widow and her sons are distant Fast forward again to 2017 when she s sixty one remarried to Peter who seems an awful lot like Derek Anne Tyler seamlessly and uickly moves us across decades and while without telling us what happens in between she has a way of letting us understand what those years may have been like for Willa She was the only woman she knew whose prime objective was to be taken for granted Enter into her life by a phone call that was perhaps not meant to have occurred is Denise her son s ex girlfriend and her nine year old daughter Cheryl Along with them a cast of characters who get to Willa in a way she hasn t felt in a long time No need to tell of the plot because if you are an Anne Tyler fan you will want to read this book If you have not read Tyler and enjoy reading about a character who is relatable whose life is not earthshaking but one that is full of hope and possibilities you may enjoy this as well I received an advanced copy of this book from Knopf through Firsttoread

Review Clock Dance

Clock Dance Read & download Ï 2 Ll telling her that her son’s ex girlfriend has been shot and needs her help she drops everything and flies across the country The spur of the moment decision to look after this woman – and her nine year old daughter and her dog – will lead Willa into uncharted territory Surrounded by new and surpris. It s been over a week since I finished Anne Tyler s latest novel Clock Dance and I have to admit I m suffering from withdrawal I miss her characters Tyler has the ability to create people of such depth and richness that you ll swear you know them like friends and family Even now when I think of the 8 or 9 Tyler novels I ve read I can vividly remember the set in his ways Macon Leary from The Accidental Tourist those very different Tull children and their distant mother Pearl Dinner At The Homesick Restaurant and the bickering mismatched Maggie and Ira Moran Breathing Lessons Those are just a fewCritics of her work argue she writes the same story continually and after a while you can see patterns among her chatty well meaning women her low key genial men and her life affirming usually female rebels But each one of her books is fixed clearly in my mind not something I can say about a lot of other writers Clock Dance s protagonist is Willa Drake and I love the way Tyler lets us get to know her In the first part we re given chapters that each capture a significant moment in her life In the first chapter she s 11 and her mother a flighty dramatic type abandons the family that too is a common Tyler theme many of her women simply walk out the door Ten years later Willa is a college student whose boyfriend springs something surprising on her during a visit to her family home And ten years after that Willa finds herself dealing rather passively with a tragedy All of this is a set up for the second part of the book in which Willa now 61 gets a phone call about Denise one of her distant sons ex girlfriends who s living in Balti Willa s never met the woman but she agrees to travel across the country to take care of Denise s 9 year old daughter even though the kid s not her son s child Willa has been a rather timid observer throughout most of her life an early scene set in an airplane remarkably illustrates that and now finally she s doing something decisive even though her family doesn t understand whyThe book s not perfect Once Willa gets to Balti she meets a few too many eccentric uirky characters and I had a hard time keeping them straight The title also doesn t resonate in the way most of her other ones doBut what I loved was seeing how artfully Tyler wove various motifs into the book airplanes children cooking driving By letting us glimpse characters over decades she lets us see how people repeat themselves make the same mistakes they or even their parents did before Have you ever seen a child who has the spunk you wish you d had at that age Willa does and it reinvigorates her lifeI know women like Willa people who without realizing it do everything for the males around them only to end up unappreciated So when she discovers a new family one in which she s warmly welcomed why wouldn t she want to spend time with them I have yet to give an Anne Tyler novel less than 3 stars And this one while not her best shows she s lost none of her powers She s a marvel

    Clock Dance (E–book) I really enjoyed the first 100 pages or so as the story moved from Willa as a child later attending college and then as a wife and mother The story however lost me when the action moved to Balti with Willa flying there to take care of a little girl as her mother is in the hospital I found most of the characters in the second half of the book annoying and because of that I couldn't really go with the whole story line from that point forwa
