On Dogs: An Anthology

by Tracey Ullman

Introduced by Tracey Ullman

The writers and poets collected within this delectable anthology reflect on the joys and pitfalls of dog ownership with wit and affection. From Roald Amundsen’s account of using sled dogs in his expedition to the South Pole to J.R. Ackerley’s tender portrayal of his ill-behaved dog Tulip, On Dogs traces the canine’s journey from working animal to pampered pet.

With a humorous introduction by Tracey Ullman (an inveterate adopter of strays), this is a perfect gift for dog lovers.

Features six black and white dog photographs by acclaimed reportage and portrait photographer Rhian Ap Gruffydd, and a cover image by Picasso of his dachshund Lump.

‘The most beautiful book I have ever seen.’
O.J. Borg, ‘Steve Wright in the Afternoon Show’ BBC Radio 2
‘The infectious joy of dogs figures large in On Dogs, introduced by the actor and comedian Tracey Ullman . . . An eclectic mixture drawn from fiction, poems, anecdotes, and scientific or philosophical essays.’
Times Literary Supplement
‘This elegant pocketsize tribute to our most loyal friends is realised in excerpts from novels, poems and literary theory.’
ArtReview
‘A classy book, and a perfect Christmas gift for the person who has everything.’
Jo Good, Radio London
‘With an impressive list of contributors, On Dogs is sure to entertain.’
Country Life
‘A stocking-stuffer gem.’
Bark Magazine
‘Bite-size canine writing punctuated by photos of slightly startled breeds and featuring an intro by Tracey Ullman. Tough to not love.’
