Armistead Maupin's maiden aunt,
This review is from: Morgans Passing (Mass Market Paperback)
Anne Tyler writes like Armistead Maupin's maiden aunt; not quite like a disapproving mother, but someone out of touch enough not to know what it is they're approving off. She views the off kilter with her head cocked to make it look like its on an even keel. Her prose focuses on the minutiae of the scenery that occurs around the characters instead of on incidents themselves. Too many times this novel reads like poetic vignettes of a landscape seen in passing and scribbled on a handy postcard.
