Heidi Julavits, upon reading her girlhood diary, decided to chronicle her life as a forty-something writer, mother and wife. The result is The folded clock, a meditation on time and self, youth and aging, betrayal and loyalty, friendship and romance, faith and fate, marriage and family, desire and death, gossip and secrets, art and ambition. Julavits's critically acclaimed novels are among our top recommended fiction reads of all time. We're thrilled to welcome her here to the store tonight to share The folded clock.
