Perhaps with him I am a dog


What was Kevin? He was earnest yet playful, boisterous yet lazy, a little rough sometimes, extremely direct and always sure of what he wanted. He was also sensitive, kind, supportive and caring, not to mention highly communicative and supremely understanding towards children.


My Life as a Dog is the funny, heartwarming and moving story of a life shared between a black and tan dachshund and his owner.


Told over two days and a weekend drawn from their many years together, it explores how Kevin overcame his cruel upbringing to flower into a self-confident dog that left everyone he met spellbound. And as they grew together, his owner learned to live in the present and navigate the difficult times they faced together.


But with Kevin rejected by the canine world and their connection ever-more profound and symbiotic, the question was: What does he think I am?

“It renders an effective, novel, and touching portrait of a man’s love for his dog . . . often brimming with inventiveness and wit . . . [It] opens with a brilliantly crafted passage, which captivates the reader and establishes tone and pacing. Elegant and highly descriptive prose portrays the scene and landscape and the physical attributes and behavior of the memoir’s central figure.” The BookLife Prize
