'Bursting with vitality and variety, it's a tour-de-force' Sunday Times

Micah Mortimer isn't the most polished person you'll ever meet.

His numerous sisters and in-laws regard him oddly but very fondly. He measures out his days running errands for work, maintaining an impeccable cleaning regime and going for runs (7:15, every morning). He is content with the steady balance of his life.

But then the order of things starts to tilt. And when a teenager shows up at Micah's door claiming to be his son, Micah is confronted with another surprise he seems poorly equipped to handle...

**A SUNDAY TIMES BOOK TO WATCH OUT FOR IN 2020** ** LONGLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2020**

Bursting with vitality and variety, it's a tour de force . . . fizzes with the qualities – characters who almost leap off the page with authenticity, speech and body language wonderfully caught – that, for more than half a century, have won her such admiration and affection -- Peter Kemp ― Sunday Times

As always, Tyler is a magician, able to conjure up, in a handful of sentences, such endlessly complicated things as the comical messiness of family life . . . You finish her novels feeling closer to life, and closer to other people -- Craig Brown ― Mail on Sunday

Almost unbearably poignant . . . a moving and perceptive story about one man’s inability to connect with others and his gradual move towards greater self-fulfilment -- Charlotte Heathcote ― Sunday Express

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

Tyler has every gift a great novelist needs: intent observation, empathy and language both direct and surprising. She has unembarrassed goodness as well. In this time of snark, preening, sub-tweeting and the showy torment of characters, we could use more Tyler -- Amy Bloom ― New York Times
