The Accidental Tourist: A Novel by Anne Tyler. #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “Incandescent, heartbreaking, exhilarating One cannot reasonably expect fiction to be much better than this.” —The Washington Post In this irresistible novel, Anne Tyler explores the slippery alchemy of attracting opposites. The Accidental Tourist Anne Tyler, Random House pp. ISBN Summary Macon Leary is a travel writer who hates both travel and anything out of the ordinary.

The screenplay for "The Accidental Tourist," by Kasdan and Frank Galati, is able to reproduce a lot of the tone and dialogue of the Anne Tyler novel without ever simply being a movie version of a book. The textures are too specific and the humor is too quirky and well-timed to be borrowed. The Accidental Tourist is a American drama film directed by Lawrence Kasdan and starring William Hurt, Kathleen Turner and Geena Davis. It was scored by John Williams. The film's screenplay was adapted by Kasdan and Frank Galati from the novel of the same name by Anne Tyler.

Words fail me: one cannot reasonably expect fiction to be much better than this, Washington PostReviews:   “The Accidental Tourist” is an award-winning book as well. Not just one or two but it has won many of the big awards as well. Not just this but there is a movie based on this novel as well.

And the movie we are talking about is also an award winner movie/5. The Accidental Tourist came out in the mid 80’s and was likely considered unique and bold for that time period.

Tyler’s book covers sex, divorce, relationships, grief, and is almost a sort of “coming of age” novel – except the main character is in his 40’s. Now, the novel just seems a bit dated.
