About the Book

The Accidental Tourist

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.
