A charming new novel of self-discovery and second chances from the best-selling, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Spool of Blue Thread.


Willa Drake can count on one hand the defining moments of her life. In 1967, she is a schoolgirl coping with her mother's sudden disappearance. In 1977, she is a college coed considering a marriage proposal. In 1997, she is a young widow trying to piece her life back together. And in 2017, she yearns to be a grandmother but isn't sure she ever will be. Then, one day, Willa receives a startling phone call from a stranger. Without fully understanding why, she flies across the country to Baltimore to look after a young woman she's never met, her nine-year-old daughter, and their dog, Airplane. This impulsive decision will lead Willa into uncharted territory--surrounded by eccentric neighbors who treat each other like family, she finds solace and fulfillment in unexpected places. A bewitching novel of hope and transformation, Clock Dance gives us Anne Tyler at the height of her powers.

Clock Dance - Anne Tyler Book Reviews

  • Another great book by Anne Tyler (Diane Offutt)

    There may be many characters in this book, but each plays a very important part in the plot. Thank you for another great read Ms. Tyler.
  • Thin development and cheap ending. (Dr. T2012)

    While the character developed slowly and with interest, it still left her feeling dry and shallow. There was a marked absence of richness of character. The title is a stretch to what the author was trying to relate it to. And the ending was cheap and abrupt.
  • Clockdance (esucher)

    So so boring.
  • Disappointing (inthemoment)

    While the author clearly has talent and the book started out strong it went south in the middle and the end. I found it boring.
  • Clock Dance (Book jacket)

    I loved this book. I didn't read the reviews beforehand nor what the book was about and maybe that's why this book kept surprising me. The characters are great. I want to meet Cheryl she's so funny. I can identify with Willa because I'm her age with a similar childhood and similar situation with my sister. Overall a very well written story about courage to live life on your terms.
  • Clock Dance (Sullytricycle)

    I enjoyed this novel better than A Spool of Blue Thread. I was interested in all of the different characters’ lives and authenticity. The story line was a bit scattered and I found myself wanting to know more about several characters. I was always happy to pick this book up and read more
  • The Clock Dance (Fencleo)

    As your emerged into the characters world of an Anne Tyler novel you start to slow down, wishing for more pages.
  • Clock Dance (I❤️AT)

    Wonderful Ann Tyler work. She never disappoints. I can really relate to her characters. I feel as if I have grown up with Ann. I call her books “A day in the life of...”
  • Clock Dance (Readingbythesea)

    I have only read one other book by Anne Tyler “ A Spool of Blue Thread” loved it. Sorry, Clock Dance started out fast but slowed in the middle the story line became repetitive, and the ending just seemed wrong!
