Feels Like Home

I’m a huge fan of Eudora Welty’s fiction, especially her short stories, so I was thrilled to be assigned a review of Anne Tyler’s latest, A Spool of Blue Thread. Pulitzer-winning Tyler, who writes mainly about Baltimore, is considered a modern-day incarnation of the late, great Mississippian; she herself has said she admires Welty a great deal. Like Welty, Tyler is fascinated by families: hidden truths, ugly faces we show only to each other, inextinguishable love, and epic battles. This novel–her twentieth–doesn’t disappoint. You can read my take on it in ELLE’s February issue–or here.
