Dog Hearted : Essays on Our Fierce and Familiar Companions
Dogs are the family we choose. They are dirty and toothy, but we let them into our homes and onto our beds.From Carl Phillips asking how wildness is tamed, to Esmé Weijun Wang finding moments of stillness in the simple act of observing her dog, to Cal Flyn befriending a sled dog called Suka in Finland, here we see dogs at every stage of their life.This anthology promises to bring joy and delight, and surprising depth and poignancy. It goes beyond the damp noses and wagging tails and gets to the heart of what makes dogs our true lifelong companions. These essays are sometimes toothy, sometimes bloody, and sometimes gentle: much like our four-legged furry friends.
