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.


"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 "Now poignant, now funny... Anne Tyler is brilliant" New York Times Book Review "A vibrant and astonishing and, above all, achingly funny book" Cosmopolitan "My favourite writer, and the best line-and-length novelist in the world, is Anne Tyler" -- Nick Hornby
