Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "The study of transracial adoption has long been dominated by historians, legal scholars, and social scientists, but with the growth of the lively field of humanistic adoption studies comes a growing understanding of the importance of cultural representations to the social meanings and even the practices of adoption itself . . . This book makes a valuable contribution in showing how important the theme of adoption has been throughout the 20th century in representations of race relations, and in showing that the adoption theme has served to challenge racial norms as well as uphold them." ---Margaret Homans, Yale University Kin of Another Kind examines American literary representations of adoption across racial lines at key moments in the 20th century to help understand adoption's literary and social significance. In juxtaposing representations of African American, American Indian, and Korean and Chinese transracial and transnational adoptions, the book traces the metaphorical significance of adoption when it appears in fiction; at the same time, aligning these groups calls attention to their unique and divergent cultural histories with adoption, which serve as important contexts for the fiction discussed. Cynthia Callahan explores the fiction of canonical authors such as William Faulkner, Toni Morrison, Charles Chesnutt, Kate Chopin, Barbara Kingsolver, Gish Jen, and Anne Tyler and productively places it alongside lesser-known works by Robert E. Boles, Dallas Chief Eagle (Lakota), and Sui Sin Far, all works that, when reconsidered, can advance our understanding not only of adoption in literature but of 20th-century American literature in general. Cynthia Callahan is Assistant Professor in the Department of English at Ohio State University, Mansfield.

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. Can Micah, a man to whom those around him always seem just out of reach, find a way back to his perfectly imperfect love story? ** BOOK OF THE YEAR Sunday Times, Daily Express, Times, Daily Telegraph, Good Housekeeping, Metro, Spectator, New Statesman** ** LONGLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2020** ___________ PRAISE FOR REDHEAD BY THE SIDE OF THE ROAD: 'A book this lovely feels practically heaven-sent' Daily Mail 'Comfort reading of the best sort' Irish Times 'Tyler packs feeling and insight into every single sentence' Good Housekeeping '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 'Bursting with vitality and variety, it's a tour-de-force' Sunday Times 'I love Anne Tyler...I've read every single book she's written' Jacqueline Wilson ___________ Readers LOVE this book: 'If you like a simply told tale that drips with heart and heartache and life and empathy and gentle humour then you can't go wrong with this' 'Anne Tyler excels in her grasp of the low key ordinary everyday lives of her characters and their relationships, as she demonstrates in this beautifully observed and astute novel' 'Not many authors can make everyday life so interesting and entertaining, and long may Anne Tyler continue to do so.'

Book excerpt: **THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER** **SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2015** 'It was a beautiful, breezy, yellow-and-green afternoon...' This is the way Abby Whitshank always begins the story of how she and Red fell in love that summer's day in 1959. The whole family on the porch, half-listening as their mother tells the same tale they have heard so many times before. From that porch we spool back through the generations, witnessing the events, secrets and unguarded moments that have come to define the family. From Red's father and mother, newly arrived in Baltimore in the 1920s, to Abby and Red's grandchildren carrying the family legacy boisterously into the twenty-first century - four generations of Whitshanks, their lives unfolding in and around the sprawling, lovingly worn Baltimore house that has always been their home... **ANNE TYLER HAS SOLD OVER 1 MILLION BOOKS WORLDWIDE** 'One of my favourite authors ' Liane Moriarty 'She spins gold' Elizabeth Buchan 'Anne Tyler has no peer' Anita Shreve 'A masterly author' Sebastian Faulks
