Many years back, a couple of friends and I drove through Roland Park and Anne Tyler's neighborhood in Baltimore. We'd have wrecked on the spot if she'd happened to be outside, of that I have no doubt.

Now her lovely stone house is on the market. I wonder why no one thought to take a photo of her bookcases? Perhaps the realtor is of the same sort that sold Shirley Jackson's house?

    What a lovely house. Though it is either very clean or no one is living it at the moment. Not even a toaster or a coffee maker on the kitchen counter!

    It's exactly the kind of house I would have picked out for Anne Tyler, though...
