The previous owner has certainly very much enjoyed reading this book more than once, therefore please be aware there will be some creasing on the spine or slight shelf wear. If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability. Shipped from the heart of the British countryside this book will leave our library within a day or two of your order and be with you shortly thereafter. Damaged book. Please note this is a damaged book. The condition of this book is as stated above, however this book is slightly damaged in some way. Typically a grazed corner or torn cover. Thanks. Aged book. Please note this book is over 20 years old. It will therefore have tanned pages, age spots and plenty of shelf wear. However, for its age it is still very useable, and a great read.

Product description

Review

"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)

Synopsis

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.
