A very funny novel about the adventures of a man called Macon. He's in his forties, he lost his son, his wife has just gone away and he writes not ordinary travel guides for businessmen for a living.
After his wife left him, he meets a very talkative woman, a dog trainer, that will help him to cope again with real life.
