Summary

"POIGNANT . . . FUNNY . . .THE ACCIDENTAL TOURISTIS 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 worldand 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." TheBoston 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.
