Boston Globe Bestseller
"A work of art."
The Charlotte Observer
"Dark, sexy, and profoundly original-a
Texas-hot family saga unlike any other. A brilliant and thought- provoking
novel from the extravagantly talented Abigail DeWitt."
Lee Smith, author of Mrs. Darcy Meets the Blue-Eyed Stranger
"Abigail DeWitt's carefully crafted and emotionally intelligent
new novel DOGS is unnerving in the way that the best fiction can
be, artfully depicting our common experiences with candor and grace.
Dogs, sex, food, errant siblings, difficult parents, the brutality
of high school, the life of the mind: is there anything worthy of
our attention that DeWitt does not notice? It has been a long time
since I have read a novel that so accurately describes the contradictory
nature of desire."
Michael Parker, author of If You Want Me to Stay
"Molly Moore is a remarkable character and her story is a
compelling one in this beautifully written novel of secrets and
Ron Rash, author of Serena
"Who knew a "bad girl" could be so innocent, so
smart, so complex?... engaging...and poignant"
In captivating detail, DeWitt aptly
captures the hungry desperation of teenagers
brilliantly to life. The
the kind of novel
that deepens one's understanding of love and family. Truly illuminating
"DeWitt's prose is nuanced and her characters are finely shaded."
