The Folded Clock

Compelling. How can she keep from writing? As a fine writer, married to another fine writer, the most natural thing for Heidi Julavits to do is to write. Her book titled, The Folded Clock, is structured as a diary, moving erratically across time. The reward for readers is her finely honed sentences, which seem to just flow with ease from one day to another. Each short entry seems so well-crafted that I read several of them more than once to see how she constructed the diary entry. The essays are personal, often funny, sometimes self-deprecating. All are finely written and provide a way to see the beauty in our everyday lives. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Folded Clock from
