Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.'Groucho Marx. 'I am sure God is a dog, otherwise whatever is the point?' 'Dog is God spelt properly.' Llama Surya Das The theme of dogs provides limitless inspiration. Here, a collection of talented writers offers stories and memoirs based on dogs - dogs real, dogs dead, dogs imagined, dogs desired. Contributors include Louis Nowra, Sue Woolfe, Barry Dickins, Robyn Williams and Carmel Bird - all responded to the invitation of writing a dog story in completely different, entertaining and exciting ways. Some of the writers in this collection mine memory for their dog stories, some write of the possibility of a dog-filled future, others of the very immediate presence of the dogs in their lives. Proxy, accidental, reluctant or passionate owners of dogs, these writers all offer fresh and intriguing perspectives on the person-dog relationship. Acts of Dog is the ultimate gift for lovers of dogs and fine writing.
