I’m not quite sure how Anne Tyler does it. If you are looking for a suspenseful, action packed book that you absolutely cannot put down, that is not her style. She has the most unbelievable way of describing real life so well with her characters. Can you tell I’m not a writer? I’m not even sure how to articulate it, but every time I look back after reading one of her books, I wonder how she managed to write them so realistically in such a quiet way.
