Description


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. Then he meets Muriel, a deliciously peculiar dog-obedience trainer who upends 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

A rarely equaled richness and depth delicious humor Without Anne Tyler, American fiction would be an immeasurably bleaker place. Newsday
