Listed below are links to weblogs that reference I still enjoy Anne Tyler.:


I always end up buying an Anne Tyler book (or two) at the Friends of the Library book sales. But she can be hit or miss. I LOVED Breathing Lessons, but The Patchwork Planet was just kind of meh. Her characters are always well-drawn, though, which is why I'm drawn to her novels.

Yes, I always get excited when I see a new Anne Tyler coming out, although I definitely have favorites and not-so-much-favorites. I'd agree that character is definitely the appeal in her novels. I'd be interested to hear what you think of this one!

Tyler's best patch was 1970-1990. Her zenith was Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant. That said, I still read all of her books when they come out.
