Book Title: A Dog's Life
Desc:

Meet Boy -- keen observer of human behavior; witty chronicler of the joys and contradictions of modern life; dog. Peter Mayle, author of such winning works of prose as A Year in Provence, gives delightful voice to his adopted dog.
In A Dog's Life, Boy tells us his own story -- that of a dog in Provence, who progresses from a puppyhood of abuse and abandonment to the good life with a writer and his wife. Witty and urbane, Boy engages us with his opinions and observations on the foibles and quirks of life with his two-footed companions.
In a house where dinner parties are frequent, guests include non- practicing painters and salesmen of wine, antique dealers and touring Americans. Boy tartly assesses them all. Mayle has uncovered here a lovable, unforgettable character in a wickedly funny book. Edward Koren doubles the fun with fifty-nine whimsical drawings. You don't have to be a dog lover or Francophile to enjoy A Dog's Life, but it might help to be at least one of the two. Once you've read this, you may well dash off to the bookstore to snap up all the Peter Mayle you can get your hands on. It's good to laugh.
Enhanced by 59 splendidly whimsical drawings by Edward Koren.
