Typical Anne Tyler! nothing new but the same good old style!,
This review is from: Back When We Were Grown-ups (Hardcover)
I had stopped reading Anne Tyler after "The ladder of Years", because I got tired. This is book follows very much the same style but it is very enjoyable. Everything is so subtle, nevertheless sadness is always present. Rebecca's subjectivity that is strongly present but never makes surface.... and dies before reaching the beach. Or just gives up swimming....????
