Redhead by the Side of the Road
By Anne Tyler
Narrated by MacLeod Andrews / 4 hours 50 minutes
From the beloved Anne Tyler, a sparkling new novel about misperception, second chances, and the sometimes elusive power of human connection.
“Becoming immersed in an Anne Tyler book has been one of my great reading joys. She was one of the first adult fiction writers I loved when I started reading contemporary fiction in high school. Redhead by the Side of the Road is delightful. Tyler is at the top of her writing game at age seventy-eight. Thank you, Anne Tyler, for reading so many quirky, funny, and relatable characters over the years!”Rachel, Avid Bookshop
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.
