|From O. Henry Award -- winning short story writer Arthur Bradford comes this strangely outlandish yet compassionate collection that signals a major new voice in fiction.|
One young man steals his blind friend's truck and is caught by the cops, while another needing a roommate lands a cat-faced circus freak. One buys pot from a dealer who locks his customers in the closet, and another must choose between his pregnant wife and the ten-pound slug he's convinced will bring him a fortune. And then there are the divinely inspired dogs that fill these stories -- three-legged, no-legged, dogs that talk and sing, and dogs that give birth to humans. Dogwalker daringly strolls along society's fringes and unearths strange beauty.
