Description

‘If Anne Tyler isn’t the best writer in the world, who is?’ BBC Radio 4, Woman’s HourA perfect love story for imperfect people. Micah Mortimer measures out his days running errands for work, maintaining an impeccable cleaning regime and going for runs (7:15, every morning).

He is in a long-term relationship with his woman friend Cassia, but they live apart.

His carefully calibrated life is regular, steady, balanced. But then the order of things starts to tilt. Cassia is threatened with eviction, and when a teenager shows up at Micah’s door claiming to be his son, he is confronted with another surprise he seems poorly equipped to handle. Can Micah, a man to whom those around him always seem just out of reach, find a way back to his perfectly imperfect love story?** BOOK OF THE YEAR Sunday Times, Daily Express, Times, Daily Telegraph, Good Housekeeping, Metro, Spectator, New Statesman**** LONGLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2020** ___________PRAISE FOR REDHEAD BY THE SIDE OF THE ROAD:’A book this lovely feels practically heaven-sent’ Daily Mail ‘Comfort reading of the best sort’ Irish Times ‘Tyler packs feeling and insight into every single sentence’ Good Housekeeping ‘Anne Tyler has the ability to take the minutiae of characters’ lives and say wise things about the human condition that other writers can only dream of’ Stylist’Bursting with vitality and variety, it’s a tour-de-force’ Sunday Times’I love Anne Tyler…I’ve read every single book she’s written’ Jacqueline Wilson___________Readers LOVE this book:’If you like a simply told tale that drips with heart and heartache and life and empathy and gentle humour then you can’t go wrong with this”Anne Tyler excels in her grasp of the low key ordinary everyday lives of her characters and their relationships, as she demonstrates in this beautifully observed and astute novel”Not many authors can make everyday life so interesting and entertaining, and long may Anne Tyler continue to do so.’
