If Morning Ever Comes by Anne Tyler

If Morning Ever Comes book. Ben Joe Hawkes is a worrier. This is Anne Tyler’s very first novel, written in 1964 when she was – gulp – only 22 years old. Apparently, Tyler has disowned this book and the one she wrote the next year, The Tin Can Tree. But I think the illustration is based on what Tyler looked like in 1964

If Morning Ever Comes. Michelle Huneven: Was this your first book? Had you written fiction before? In 1964, creative writing was barely a college-course subject let alone a major or P. That said, did you study writing in college? When did you first think of becoming a writer? Anne Tyler: If Morning Ever Comes was the second book I wrote but the first to be published. I’d written an earlier novel toward the end of my last year in college. My major was Russian, oddly enough. Writing was just a sideline, something I indulged in purely for fun while I waited to see what I was going to do with my life

Anne Tyler (born October 25, 1941) is a Pulitzer Prize-winning .

In 1963, Tyler married Iranian psychiatrist and novelist Taghi Mohammad Modarressi, with whom she had two daughters, Tezh and Mitra. Modarressi died in 1997. 1. When Ben Joe Hawkes left home he gave his sister Susannah one used guitar, six shelves of National Geographic, a battered microscope, and a foot-high hourglass. Lately he had taken to spending the really cold days in bed with a murder mystery, and he was beginning to think he should have done that this morning. On Broadway he stayed close to the buildings, hoping that there would be less wind there. He passed the brass nameplate on one of the concrete walls and for an instant saw his face reflected there, made yellow by the brass, with his mouth open and his jaw clenched and his teeth gnashed against the cold.

"A triumph."HARPERSBen Joe Hawkes is a worrier. Raised by his mother, grandmother, and a flock of busy sisters, he's always felt the outsider. When he learns that one of his sisters has left her husband, he heads for home and back into the confusion of childhood memories and unforseen love....

Oh my, I love Anne Tyler. This is her first published novel (written at age 22 and published in 1964), but it is still filled with the charm of all the novels she would later write. Taking place in a small North Carolina town, it is the story of Benjamin Josiah Hawkes, Ben Joe for short, the only boy in a family of seven children. When the book opens, Ben Joe is 25 and a first year law student at Columbia. But he quickly returns home for a long weekend in the middle of the first semester when he learns that his older sister, Joanne, has left her husband and come home with a baby daughter. The book is the story of that long weekend and Ben Joe's inability to fully leave home or fully belong there. It is a story about having roots as a child and then growing up and establishing new roots. Like all of Anne Tyler's books, this one is short on plot but comes to life with characters that are so real they seem to breathe on their own. Treat yourself and read this book!
Ben Joe Hawkes--the only man in a family of women, possibly the only dependable person in a family (and town) of flakes, a southerner in a northern law school, has come home on an unscheduled visit, to find some direction. The story is beautifully written, and the characters rich and complex. Is he running away from law school for good? What is he hoping will happen? Will he get back together with his old flame? Would that be a good thing?
For any other author, I'd have rated this book 5 stars because of its beautiful, descriptive style and the well-rounded characters. Having read The Accidental Tourist, Dinner At The Homesick Restaurant, and A Spool Of Blue Thread, I felt that this book--Tyler's first published one--was not quite as good. At the end, I still felt I didn't quite see inside Ben Joe's head as well as I should. Was the end what he had meant to happen, or had he allowed himself to be talked into it? The resolution didn't feel either right or wrong.
Nonetheless, you will love the quirky characters and the evocation of a small North Carolina town in the 60s.
I don't know how many Anne Tyler books I read; it must be at least a dozen. This one is the first one that I would call boring. Nothing much happens in the book, which is about a young man who is a worrywart who is tied to his family. He sort of wants to let go of them, and sort of doesn't want to, or can't. So he sort of does and sort of doesn't and finally sort of makes a decision about it and that's the book.
This is probably the most boring book i have ever read. I only finished it because I was determined not to let it get the best of me......
It's more of a long character study than a story. I only read it a month ago and had to look up some other reviews to remember what it was about ... very little happens. And yet the main character changes over a few days to get beyond life just flowing past him to making important decisions. I wouldn't start with this one if you haven't read Anne Tyler before.
Since I’m a huge Anne Tyler fan, I'm starting with her first published novel (this one) and reading all of her books that I haven'r already read. I'm used to her slow pace, but If Morning Ever Comes is snail paced. It's the story of Ben Joe Hawkes and his struggle to break away from the spell of his eccentric North Carolina family. Even though it's slow going, Anne Tyler's talent for making her readers really know her characters is beautifully present in this book.
As I said above this is, as I understand it, her first book. Over the years I have read a lot of Anne Tyler's books and have found them a gentle read with well rounded characters and a slow but engaging plot which unwinds satisfactorily. If I want a pleasant read from a very competent writer with a beautiful use of language, I reach for a book by Anne Tyler. I find her use of language concise and deceptively simple as she describes complex feelings expertly and keeps me engrossed in the plot to the end. This book shows her promise and though certainly not one of her best gives a glimpse of the expert author she will develop into. Surprisingly complex character realization for one so young.
I've enjoyed many Anne Tyler books and am now backtracking to her earlier works. I could only recommend "If Morning Ever Comes" if you are a fan, and are curious. This was her first book written in 1964 and Ms. Tyler has stated in re-reading it, her surprise it was ever published. I concur, as it moves along slower than anything I can ever remember reading, but does show some of the promise we find in her later epics. If you want to check out her best, you might try; The Accidental Tourist, Saint Maybe, Ladder of Years, or The Amatuer Marriage.
