Synopsis: A postmodern Mary Shelley, taking the parable of Frankenstein's monster several giant steps farther, might have written this fable of a novel about a tragic race of monster dogs--in this case, genetically and biomechanically engineered dogs (of several major breeds). Created by a German mad scientist in the 19th century, the monster dogs possess human intelligence, speak human language, have prosthetic humanlike hands and walk upright on hind legs. The dogs' descendants arrive in New York City in the year 2008, still acting like Victorian-era aristocrats. Most important, the monster dogs suffer humanlike frailties and, ultimately, real suffering more serious and affecting than the subject matter might at first glance suggest.

About the Author: Kirsten Bakis was born in Switzerland to parents of Estonian origin and grew up outside New York where she now lives. After graduating from New York University, she attended the prestigious Iowa University Writer's Workshop where she was taught by, among others, Saul Bellow. She is 28 years old and works part time as a secretary in a small church in Manhattan.
