Description
Only The New Yorker could fetch such an unbelievable roster of talent on the subject of man's best friend. This copious collection, beautifully illustrated in full colour, features articles, fiction, humour, poems, cartoons, cover art, drafts and drawings from the magazine's archives. Contributors include John Cheever, Roddy Doyle, Arthur Miller, John Updike, Roald Dahl, E B White, A J Liebling, Ogden Nash, Donald Barthelme, Mark Strand, Anne Sexton and many others. Complete with a foreword by Malcolm Gladwell and an essay by Adam Gopnik on the immortal canines of James Thurber.

I usually hate anthologies. But this one works triumphantly . . . Above all it works because there is tremendous writing. SPECTATOR
