About this title


A collection of quotations, anecdotes, folklore, and essays from the likes of Mark Twain and Emily Dickinson offers a comical and poignant view of man's best friend

From Library Journal:

In this collection of anecdotes, sayings, poems, and facts about dogs, Winokur, editor of The Portable Curmudgeon (NAL, 1987), has selected his material from classics and comics, old and new. Alexander Pope, Lord Byron, James Thurber, Mark Twain, and P.G. Wodehouse are here with known dog writers Roger Caras, James Herriot, Jack London, and Barbara Woodhouse. Winokur gathers similar topics together in chapters under such titles as "Body and Soul" on dogs' devotion to humans, and "Gaga" about pampered pets: "Josephine insisted on allowing her small dog to sleep in the imperial bed over Napoleon's strenuous--and futile--objections." One-liners, paragraphs, or essays cover various aspects of dogdom, from breeds and heroes to language and tail wagging. This humorous book should be added to every collection where funds permit.
