A memoir of the transformative power of loving dogs.
From bestselling author of She’s Not There, New York Times opinion columnist, and human rights activist Jennifer Finney Boylan.
In her New York Times opinion column, Jennifer Finney Boylan wrote about her relationship with her beloved dog Indigo, and her wise, funny, heartbreaking piece went viral. In Good Boy, Boylan explores what should be the simplest topic in the world, but never is: finding and giving love.
Good Boy is the account of a remarkable story: showing how a young boy became a middle-aged woman―accompanied at seven crucial moments of growth and transformation by seven memorable dogs. “Everything I know about love,” she writes, “I learned from dogs.” Their love enables us pull off what seem like impossible feats: to find our way home when we are lost, to live our lives with humor and courage, and above all, to best become our true selves.
“Gorgeous... a journey through the moral needle of the world.”
―Jodi Picoult, #1 NYT bestselling author of A Spark of Light and Small Great Things
“Good Boy is a warm, funny, instantly engaging testament to the power of love―canine and human―to ease us through life’s radical transitions. And I say that as a cat person!”
―Jennifer Egan, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, and author of A Visit from the Goon Squad, and Manhattan Beach
