One of the best books of the year: O Magazine, Christian Science Monitor, Minneapolis Star-Tribune, The Times (London).

A charming new novel of self-discovery and second chances from the best-selling, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Spool of Blue Thread.

Willa Drake can count on one hand the defining moments of her life. In 1967, she is a schoolgirl coping with her mother's sudden disappearance. In 1977, she is a college coed considering a marriage proposal. In 1997, she is a young widow trying to piece her life back together. And in 2017, she yearns to be a grandmother but isn't sure she ever will be. Then, one day, Willa receives a startling phone call from a stranger. Without fully understanding why, she flies across the country to Baltimore to look after a young woman she's never met, her nine-year-old daughter, and their dog, Airplane. This impulsive decision will lead Willa into uncharted territory - surrounded by eccentric neighbors who treat each other like family, she finds solace and fulfillment in unexpected places. 

A bewitching novel of hope and transformation, Clock Dance gives us Anne Tyler at the height of her powers.

Kritikerstimmen

“Tyler’s characteristic warmth and affection for her characters are engaging as ever... [They are] all vibrantly portrayed with her usual low-key gusto and bracingly dark humor... Power dynamics are never simple in Tyler’s portraits of marriage.” (Kirkus Reviews)
