Résumé : “Anne 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 Book Review “If ever there was a perfect time for a new Anne Tyler novel, it’s now—and this one doesn’t disappoint . . . Heartwarming and very funny—one of Tyler’s best yet.”  — People  (book of the week) “Anne Tyler could make even quarantined lives feel expansive and lovely . . . Though we have stripped our daily rituals down to their bare essentials, we remain as big and as loving and as scared and as frustratingly human as we were before the world outside screeched to a halt.  Redhead by the Side of the Road  is a delicate and moving reminder of this, and proves Tyler’s voice remains as vital as ever.”  — Vanity Fair   “Tyler’s novels are always worth scooping up—but especially this gently amusing soother, right now, when all of our cherished routines have been disrupted.”  — NPR “Entrancing . . . Tyler is an American Vermeer whose canvases keep opening whole worlds within compact frames . . . As novelist Marilynne Robinson has observed, 'realism has been so predominant a literary style ‘that it is easy to forget it is a style.’ One of its flawless practitioners is Anne Tyler, whose fiction maps the sea changes of her characters in carefully calibrated, deceptively understated prose . . . Tyler is a keen-eyed but tenderhearted social observer.” —Hamilton Cain,  O Magazine   “Affecting . . . Tyler has the rare ability to evoke the ordinary with particularity.” — The New Yorker   “There’s always good reason to celebrate a new Anne Tyler novel, and  Redhead by the Side of the Road  warrants popping open the champagne . . . Who else can make words sparkle with humor and tenderness in quite this way? . . . Hilarious and poignant . . . Shows the author at the top of her form.”  — Boston Globe “Anne Tyler, she knows what she’s doing. You feel very taken care of when you’re reading an Anne Tyler book.” —Ann Patchett, Wisconsin Public Radio   “Anne Tyler may, in the end, prove to be one of the most influential novelists of her generation . . . Her books are so irresistibly readable that it’s startling to realise what technical marvels they often are.”  — Daily Telegraph   “If, in December, we might sing, ‘We need a little Christmas right this very minute,’ in pandemic panic we might warble that we need or could surely use a little Anne Tyler.”  — Pittsburgh Post-Gazette   “It moves so quickly and seamlessly . . . Poignant.”  — Minneapolis Star Tribune   “Reading Anne Tyler is always pure pleasure, and  Redhead by the Side of the Road  is the author at her best. This joyful book is a powerful reminder of how much we need human connection.”  — BookPage  (starred) “Another gem from Anne Tyler . . . This is her best novel in some time . . . Tyler has won so many plaudits over the past 50 odd years that it’s hard to think of new superlatives to add . . .  Tyler’s ability to make you care about her characters is amazing, and never more so than here.”  — Observer  (UK)   “Tyler’s warmly comedic, quickly read tale, a perfect stress antidote, will delight her fans and provides an excellent ‘first’ for readers new to this master of subtle and sublime brilliance . . . Perfectly modulated, instantly enmeshing, heartrending, funny, and redemptive.”  — Booklist   “A fully realised world full of dry humour . . . Each character is deftly drawn in a few lines.”  — The Times  (UK)
