She Tells Secrets About A Woman Who Keeps Everyone Else's


Listening to this. It is almost too painful in its completely genuine and honest portrayal of a woman's aging.

At least for me.

  2. I may be going through some kind of revelation about aging. Perhaps all my flashbacks about childhood are tied to missing of my youth--unblemished and without the hard edges that I acquired with age. I keep working on softening those edges. Some days they are simply how I survived.

  3. I just put a hold on it at the library. There are about 300 people ahead of me or I could get the audiobook with only 5 people ahead of me. :-)

  4. Love Anne Tyler. Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant is one of my favorite books ever. It's a master class on writing and characterization and storytelling. I might be in the exact place to read this new one. Yes, aging isn't easy.

  5. Sometimes Ann Tyler bores me, but this one sounds intriguing. I did love Ladder of Years, too -- the one where the woman leaves her family and starts a new life in a neighboring town. That one cracks me up.

  6. I'll be interested to hear what you think of it when you come to the end. I had some problems with this book, and I love a lot of Anne Tyler's stuff. (Particularly her older books.)
