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.

Still waiting for something to happen

I enjoyed the writing, but the book ended before anything ever happened. I’m ok with a few loose ends this book didn’t wrap up a single relationship.

No surpries

I have read quite a number of Tyler’s books. This was “pleasant”. Nothing more or less. Very predictable, although she is proficient in catching the essence of her characters very quickly.

Perky too ,

Clock Dance

I hate it when reviewers say “I couldn’t put it down “ so I am not going to say that, but I will say I looked forward to having a reason to sit down and pick this book up again. I am surprised at the readers who disliked Clock Dance. Anne Tyler always has a good story to tell and this one will be one of my favorites. Wonderful characters and setting. And the ending was just right. If you are an Anne Tyler fan you will like this story. I enjoyed it from the first page to the last. I feel like I have left all those interesting people and want to know how their lives turn out. Great read👏
