Discover a beautiful story of what it is to be human from Pulitzer prize-winning Sunday Times bestselling Anne Tyler

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Her masterpiece * Daily Mail *
Brilliant, funny, sad and sensitive * Independent on Sunday *
Anne Tyler gets better with every book, and this one is a triumph - funny, profound, sad and ultimately reassuring * Sunday Telegraph *
Warmly entertaining and sharply organised against cuteness or mush * Guardian *
The Accidental Tourist is one of Anne Tyler's best books * New York Times *
A beautiful, incandescent, heartbreaking, exhilarating book... The Accidental Tourist cuts so close to the bone that it leaves one aching with pleasure and pain. Words fail me: one cannot reasonably expect fiction to be much better than this * Washington Post *
Everything this author writes is shot through with intelligent insight, humour and humanity * Daily Mail *
