About this Item

Noted author's tenth novel, basis for the movie, about a travel writer who hates to travel but must travel and hence he meets Muriel, who works at the kennel where he leaves his Corgi while on trips. This novel had a large first printing (75,000) and thus will never be difficult to find but it will in this unusual condition. Tightly bound book, very clean and crisp and thus probably unread, a stated first edition, without names or other markings, in a similar DJ that is not price clipped, not edgeworn, very clean and bright and protected by a mylar sleeve.

About this title

Synopsis:

The meeting of Macon Leary, a travel-hater who makes his living writing travel guides called "The Accidental Tourist In...," and frizzy-haired, nonstop talker Muriel sets off an unexpected chain of events

From the Inside Flap:

The story of a travel-hating writer of travel books, Macon Leafy, who systematically avoids adventure... until he meets the frizzy-haired, stiletto-heeled, astonishing Muriel (she's trying to train his unmanageable Welsh corgi, Edward), who up-ends Macon's world and thrusts him into engagement with life. Anne Tyler's most famous best seller.

Winner of the 1985 National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction. 2 cassettes.
