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." --NPR From 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.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Anne TylerPublisher: Knopf Publishing GroupPublished: 04/07/2020ISBN: 9780525658412Pages: 192Weight: 0.95lbsSize: 9.20h x 5.90w x 1.10dReview Citations: Library Journal Prepub Alert 12/01/2019 pg. 56Publishers Weekly 01/13/2020Kirkus Reviews 01/15/2020 pg. 35Booklist 02/01/2020 pg. 24
