The Dog Stars

Jana Navratil, January 30, 2013

The writing is very unique and takes a few pages to get used to, but it becomes so personal and powerful that I inhabited the world of Hig and his beloved dog, Jasper. I don't think I fully returned to reality during the 3 days of reading. And I know it will stay with me for a long time.

The author is a poet, a pilot, an outdoor adventure writer, and a cat owner. Now he is an outstanding fiction writer as well.

Glen Duncan says it well on the dust jacket: "Make time and space for this savage, tender, brilliant book."

Good advice.
