Falling in Love with Anne Tyler

I just
read two
Anne Tyler
novels
back-to-back
after never
having read
her at all.


She slips
perceptions
into my
mind like
loaves of
warm bread
& in the
three-&-
one-half-
page first
chapter of
The Accidental
Tourist breathes
more life
into
two main
characters than
most novelists
manage
in an
entire book.


She wraps
the whole
thing up
in a
burst of
poetry
& it’s
love at
first sight.
