Accidental Tourist

by 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.

“It is not how much you love someone, but who you are when you are with him.”

Anne Tyler, The Accidental Tourist
