Probably the funniest Anne Tyler book I have ever read! Charlotte is hilarious as a woman who is kidnapped during a bank robbery. She recently decided to leave her husband and almost succeeds in driving her kidnapper crazy! The two head across the country in an adventure that is both hilarious and exciting.
