Description
De la querida y superventas Anne Tyler, una nueva y brillante novela sobre percepciones erróneas, segundas oportunidades y el poder a veces esquivo de la conexión humana. Micah Mortimer es una criatura de hábitos. Un experto en tecnología que trabaja por cuenta propia, superintendente de su edificio de apartamentos en Baltimore, cauteloso ante una falla detrás del volante, parece contento de llevar una vida estable y circunscrita. Pero un día, sus rutinas se ven frustradas cuando su amiga (se niega a llamar "novia" a alguien de treinta y tantos años) le dice que se enfrenta a un desalojo, y un adolescente aparece en la puerta de Micah afirmando ser su hijo. Estas sorpresas, y la forma en que trastornan la vida meticulosamente organizada de Micah, corren el riesgo de cambiarlo para siempre. Una mirada íntima al corazón y la mente de un hombre que encuentra a quienes lo rodean fuera de su alcance, y una historia divertida, alegre y profundamente compasiva sobre cómo ver el mundo a través de nuevos ojos, Redhead by the Side of the Road es un triunfo, lleno con el ingenio característico de Anne Tyler y la observación de ojos penetrantes.
Description
From the beloved and best-selling 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.
