"The New York Times"
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.
BITTERSWEET . . . EVOCATIVE . . . It's easy to forget this is the warm lull of fiction; you half-expect to run into her characters at the dry cleaners . . . Tyler is] a writer of great compassion.
"The" "Boston Globe"
Tyler has given us an endlessly diverting book whose strength gathers gradually to become a genuinely thrilling one.
"Los Angeles Times"
