Description
Widely renowned for such books as A Year in Provence and Hotel Pastis, Peter Mayle here gives us a memoir of a decidedly different stripe. While in Provence, Mayle adopted a dog of uncertain origins and dubious hunting skills and named him Boy. In this hilarious 1996 book—illustrated with the inimitable dog drawings of New Yorker cartoonist Edward Koren—Mayle gives his canny canine a voice, and proves that the best vantage point for observing life may well be on all fours.

"A dog whose personality is made up of equal parts of Boswell and Dr. Johnson, Mencken and A.A. Milne.... Tart and vinegary, urbane and stinging—merrily sprinkled, like a geranium outside a kennel, with acerbic tributes —A Dog's Life is a shining example of the canine confessional."—Chicago Tribune
