American writer Anne Tyler wrote her first novel If Morning Ever Comes at the age of 22; first published in 1964. Tyler wrote short stories, literary criticism, and over twenty novels. On classifying Tyler’s work, poet and author Katha Pollitt notes "It is hard to classify Anne Tyler's novels. They are Southern in their sure sense of family and place but lack the taste for violence and the Gothic that often characterizes self-consciously southern literature. They are modern in their fictional techniques, yet utterly unconcerned with contemporary moment as a subject, so that, with only minor dislocations, her stories could just as well have taken place in twenties or thirties."
