Redhead by the Side of the Road

Connections. Micah Mortimer, protagonist of Anne Tyler’s novel titled, Redhead by the Side of the Road, strives for order and perfection. Tyler tosses surprises into Micah’s life and incomplete interpersonal connections become transparent. Each of us needs someone in our lives who helps us see ourselves as we really are. Sometimes our routine becomes more important than paying attention to the love in our lives. The portrait of Micah may not look like any of us, but his complexity and humanity will be familiar and offer a glimpse into what lives can become when we are open to love. As always, Tyler draws us into the story, keeps us close, and brings us home by the end. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase Redhead by the Side of the Road from amazon.com.
