Redhead by the Side of the Road


INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLERLONGLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE'If ever there was a perfect time for a new Anne Tyler novel, it's now.' 'People 'tyler's novels are always worth scooping up'but especially this gently amusing soother, right now.' 'NPRFrom the beloved Anne Tyler, a sparkling new novel about misperception, second chances, and the sometimes elusive power of human connection.Micah Mortimer is a creature of habit. A self-employed tech expert, superintendent of his Baltimore apartment building, cautious to a fault behind the steering wheel, he seems content leading a steady, circumscribed life. But one day his routines are blown apart when his woman friend (he refuses to call anyone in her late thirties a "girlfriend") tells him she's facing eviction, and a teenager shows up at Micah's door claiming to be his son. These surprises, and the ways they throw Micah's meticulously organized life off-kilter, risk changing him forever. An intimate look into the heart and mind of a man who finds those around him just out of reach, and a funny, joyful, deeply compassionate story about seeing the world through new eyes, Redhead by the Side of the Road is a triumph, filled with Anne Tyler's signature wit and gimlet-eyed observation.
