Description

John Armstrong uses his wry wit and vivid prose to evoke a life immeasurably enriched by one best friend after another. He tells boyhood tales of romping along the railroad tracks with Spooky the mutt, touching accounts of Sluggo the Rottweiler befriending sex workers, howl-inducing memories of laying a treasured friend to rest during a rain- and beer-soaked night, and many more stories both moving and hilarious. A hilarious, perceptive and moving memoir that is really about the dogs that have added texture and meaning to his own journey, A Series of Dogs introduces the reader to a cast of some of the most memorable characters to come along in Canadian literature in some time–all of them dogs.

Contributor Notes

Musician and bandleader of The Modernettes, John Armstrong is the author of two highly acclaimed books, Wages and Guilty of Everything, a BC Book Prizes finalist. He lives in Chilliwack, BC with his dogs and family.
