well researched examination of the bond between noted writers and their companion animals. The author gives us a fresh perspective on the lives of a select group of literary women authors, spanning the late 1800s to the yearly 20th century. Anyone who loves literature and dogs will be deeply moved by these bio-profiles.

Reading the description of this book I thought I was purchasing a collection of writings by the subjects that centre on their pets. No such thing. As stated a little later in the description, they are potted biographies by a dog lover. This book isn't a collection of literary curiosities. It isn't literary at all. It's a pop biography written from a specific stance. You might like it, but I was reading hoping for the words of those it deals with; no such luck. For me it was a huge let down. Oh, and the narrator should look up the pronunciation of English place names, especially Torquay! Very annoying.
