The first book-length work of nonfiction by Julavits, an accomplished novelist and editor, is an absolute triumph. A two year diary, pieced together here out of chronological order, The Folded Clock is an elegant and wry exercise is self-reflection, occasional accusation, and compassion. Julavits perfectly captures the ongoing process of becoming one's self, the impossibility of fully doing so, and the nascent pleasures of the undertaking.
