A master at chronicling the lives of ordinary people uncovers universal truths in a novel about a computer repair man. There is a girlfriend of sorts but no sign of male friends. For a novelist who has spent more than 50 years capturing in detail the lives and hearts of ordinary people, this brief, judgmental pulling of focus is startling. It is also, possibly, a sly riposte to her harshest critics. Tyler claims not to read her reviews but, as her fiction proves, she misses nothing: a thread of steeliness runs through her determinedly unshowy prose.
Micah Mortimer measures out his days running errands for work, maintaining an impeccable cleaning regime and going for runs , every morning. He is in a long-term relationship with his woman friend Cassia, but they live apart. His carefully calibrated life is regular, steady, balanced. But then the order of things starts to tilt. Cassia is threatened with eviction, and when a teenager shows up at Micah's door claiming to be his son, he is confronted with another surprise he seems poorly equipped to handle.
