Reviews
"Poignant . . . funny . . . The Accidental Tourist is one of her best. . . . [Tyler] has never been stronger."--The New York Times

"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

"A delight . . . a graceful comic novel about getting through life."--The Wall Street Journal

"A rarely equaled richness and depth . . . Delicious humor . . . Without Anne Tyler, American fiction would be an immeasurably bleaker place."--Newday

"Incandescent, heartbreaking, exhilarating . . . One cannot reasonably expect fiction to be much better than this."--The Washington Post

"Hilarious . . . and touching . . . Anne Tyler is a wise and perceptive writer with a warm understanding of human foibles."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Comic . . . Sweetly perverse . . . A novel animated by witty invention and lively personalities."--Time
