''Handsomely produced . . . All in all, a quite absorbing collection, an easy Christmas present, and a perfect (if bulky) loo-side read.''
Jeremy Nicholas


A wonderful selection of writing on dogs, from Plato to Virginia Woolf, and from ancient Egypt to twentieth-century New York

From beautiful lyrics to madcap waggery, from Elizabeth Barrett Browning''s adored lap-dog Flush to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle''s terrifying Hound of the Baskervilles, and encompassing odes, fables, stories, songs, nursery rhymes and more, Mark Bryant has compiled a wonderfully evocative collection of writing on all kinds of dogs by all kinds of authors.

Included are poems by Geoffrey Chaucer, William Shakespeare, Alexander Pope, Jonathan Swift, Rudyard Kipling, Lord Byron, William Wordsworth, Robert Burns and more; humorous pieces by Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, Ambrose Bierce and Jerome K.
