Listing Detail Tabs

This is a diary, of a sort. But since it is well known that dogs have no sense of time, it is a sporadic, haphazard grab-bag that has little chronological basis. Instead, it offers some reflections on the relationship between man and dog, and the occasional revelation about the human condition as seen from a different perspective - that is, approximately knee-high.

The author, Boy, is a pure-bred paranoid, labouring under delusions of grandeur, combined with an acute persecution complex that manifests itself at tactically convenient moments. He is a character of rich intricacy.

His journal, falling somewhere between Proust and Eeyore, is often slanderous and relentlessly self-absorbed. Quotations form the great sages are interspersed with more practical dog matters, so that he find 'apercus' by Voltaire of Machiavelli cheek by jowl with hints on dealing with clumsy and undisciplined human feet under the dinner table.

Full of wit and humour, and illustrated lavishly throughout with cartoons by Edward Koren, A DOG'S LIFE, with its unique literary voice and frequently offensive opinions, includes a canine of truly unforgettable character.
