Dog’s Eye View

In Andrew O’Hagan’s The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog, and of His Friend Marilyn Monroe, the icon’s pet Maltese describes Monroe’s much-examined life from his own poochy perspective. Yep, the four-footed narrator has returned. In case you accidentally incinerated your “So you like The Art of Racing in the Rain” booklists and display ideas, here are a few other Fido-focused titles to get you back on the dog track: Timbuktu by Paul Auster, A Dog’s Purpose: A Novel for Humans by W. Bruce Cameron, Huck: The Remarkable True Story of How One Lost Puppy Taught a Family–and a Whole Town–About Hope and Happy Endings by Janet Elder, Marley and Me by John Grogan, Sight Hound by Pam Houston, A Dog Year by Jon Katz, Stay by Allie Larkin, Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love by Larry Levin, Dog on It by Spencer Quinn, Flush by Virginia Woolf, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski.
