9780099480013: The Accidental Tourist

How does a man addicted to routine - a man who flosses his teeth before love-making - cope with the chaos of everyday life? With the loss of his son, the departure of his wife and the arrival of Muriel, a dog trainer from the Meow-Bow dog clinic, Macon's attempts at ordinary life are tragically and comically undone.

From the Inside Flap:


?POIGNANT . . . FUNNY . . . THE ACCIDENTAL TOURIST IS ONE OF HER BEST. . . . [TYLER] HAS NEVER BEEN STRONGER.?
?The New York Times

Macon Leary is a travel writer who hates both travel and anything out of the ordinary. He is grounded by loneliness and an unwillingness to compromise his creature comforts when he meets Muriel, a deliciously peculiar dog-obedience trainer who up-ends Macon?s insular world?and thrusts him headlong into a remarkable engagement with life.

?BITTERSWEET . . . EVOCATIVE . . . It?s easy to forget this is the warm lull of fiction; you half-expect to run into her characters at the dry cleaners . . . Tyler [is] a writer of great compassion.?
?The Boston Globe

?Tyler has given us an endlessly diverting book whose strength gathers gradually to become a genuinely thrilling one.?
?Los Angeles Times


?A DELIGHT . . . A GRACEFUL COMIC NOVEL ABOUT GETTING THROUGH LIFE.?
?The Wall Street Journal


From the Trade Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover:


“INDISPUTABLY HER BEST BOOK . . .
It leaves one aching with pleasure and pain.”
The Washington Post

“Hilarious . . . and touching . . . Anne Tyler is a wise and perceptive writer with a warm understanding of human foibles.”
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Comic . . . Sweetly perverse . . . A novel animated by witty invention and lively personalities.”
Time

“Anne Tyler [is] covering common ground with uncommon insight. . . . Convincingly real.”
