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:

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.

From the Back Cover:

"A beautiful, incandescent, heartbreaking, exhilarating book... There's magic in it... comic scenes that explode with joy."-- Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World

"Brilliant...poignant [and] funny...One of her best." -- Larry McMurtry, The New York Times Book Review
