Everyday life in Baltimore, USA, is full of problems – getting the washing done, buying groceries and dog food, avoiding the neighbours… After the death of his son and the departure of his wife, Macon’s attempts to run his own life become increasingly desperate – and more and more odd.
Meanwhile, he has to get on with his work, writing tourist guides for business people. Then his dog Edward starts to bite people, and he has to send for Muriel, the dog trainer. And day by day, Macon’s life gets more and more complicated.
