New novel, Anne Tyler’s Clock Dance. It was difficult to decide what the powder blue wool suit looked like. My first impression was that it would be a Jackie Kennedy/Chanel-style little blue suit – I even pictured the pillbox hat. Then I realized the event was set in 1977 when pant suits reigned supreme and women no longer wore hats. There were other events that led me to believe our character would not be wearing a decade-old style. Even though I really wanted her to be wearing that chic skirt and jacket, and even though pant suits were usually polyester, especially at her socio-economic level, I went with the pant suit. I am a bit unhappy with the fact checking in this novel.Nevertheless, I am happy to be reading Anne Tyler again.
