#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • 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. Praise for The Accidental Tourist “Poignant . . . funny . . . The Accidental Tourist is one of her best. . . . [Tyler] has never been stronger.”—The New York Times “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.”—Newday “Incandescent, heartbreaking, exhilarating . . . One cannot reasonably expect fiction to be much better than this."—The Washington Post From the Trade Paperback edition.
