2010 book 15

Pete Nelson's I Thought You Were Dead
I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that this is one of the great man and his dog novels of our time. Of course, it's about more than that--it's about a man writing a book called "Nature for Morons" in 1998, struggling with his divorce, his girlfriend (who has another boyfriend), and his father's stroke. But mostly it's about him and his wonderful, wonderful dog Stella, and their wonderful, wonderful relationship. Really well-done. A.
