Redhead by the Side of the Road Anne Tyler read online review & book description:

LONGLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE • NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER From the beloved Pulitzer Prize–winning author, a sparkling 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.

    I can’t believe I paid $14 for a book that is really a couple of chapters. It is well written but a disappointment.

    I love Anne Tyler’s books and this was very enjoyable. I like her descriptions of the people and the bits of humor she injects. I was truly surprised and disappointed when I reached the end, expecting that the sorry would go on much longer.

    I enjoyed the book, but this is a novella, not a novel. I don’t think I should have paid 14.00 for a book that is less than 200 pp. I am very disappointed. I don’t usually make it a habit of checking to see how many pp a book contains before I purchase it, but I guess I will from now on.
