This is an auction for THE ACCIDENTAL TOURIST by Anne Tyler.

This is a wonderful book. - DH

"Scarred by grief after their 12-year-old son's senseless murder, Macon and Sarah Leary are losing their marriage too. Macon is unable to cope when she leaves him, so he settles down 'safe among the people he'd started out with', moving back home with two divorced brothers and spinster sister Rose. Author of a series of guidebooks called 'Accidental Tourist' for businessmen who hate to travel, Macon is Tyler's focus here, as she gently chronicles his journey from lonely self-absorption to an 'accidental' new life with brassy Muriel, a dog trainer from the Meow Bow Animal Hospital, who renews and claims his heart. Not a character, including Macon's dog Edward, is untouched by delightful eccentricity in this charming story, full of surprises and wisdom. All of Tyler's novels are wonderful; this is the best yet."
