Redhead by the Side of the Road
By (author): Anne Tyler
9780385694858 Hardcover English General Trade FICTION / Literary Apr 07, 2020

Forthcoming 6.38 x 9.54 x 1.04 in 192 pages Doubleday Canada Bond Street Books
From the beloved and bestselling 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.

Story Locale: Baltimore, MD

MOMENTUM: Clock Dance landed on the New York Times bestseller list at #3, was longlisted for the 2019 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence and was on several best-of-the-year lists. A Spool of Blue Thread was also a critical success. We are poised to continue this streak with Redhead.

SIZE: One of Tyler’s most compact books—deliciously bite-sized (it can be read in one sitting!), as well as being a rich and layered piece of work.

CHARACTER: Readers are sure to embrace Micah with his quirky sense of humour, his overbearing family and his sometimes misguided—but utterly relatable—attempts to connect to those around him.

VINTAGE: Tyler’s complete backlist, including A Spool of Blue Thread, is now with Anchor Canada, offering us even more promotional opportunities across her extensive, celebrated body of work.

Praise for Anne Tyler:

“[Tyler] exudes tremendous skill and precision.” —Toronto Star

“Tyler is an adept cultural chronicler…. She zeroes in on the minutiae of social encounters.” —National Post

“There’s a reason why Pulitzer Prize winner Anne Tyler is one of America’s most-read authors. She combines emotional complexity with wholly relatable material in observational page-turners.” —NOW (Toronto)

“[Tyler’s] prose is at once unpretentious and elegiac, like a photograph by Dorothea Lange, and her imagery has staying power. Taken together, the distinct but overlapping worlds of her novels have formed a Sensurround literary record of the 20th-century American family.” —The New York Times
