The Lost Dog Giveaway


5 Copies of The Lost Dog by Michelle de Kretser
to be given away!!!

Synopsis
Tom Loxley, an Indian-Australian professor, is less concerned with finishing his book on Henry James than with finding his dog, who is lost in the Australian bush.
Joining his daily hunt is Nelly Zhang, an artist whose husband disappeared mysteriously years before Tom met her. Although Nelly helps him search for his beloved pet, Tom isn't sure if he should trust this new friend.
Tom has preoccupations other than his book and Nelly and his missing dog, mainly concerning his mother, who is suffering from the various indignities of old age. He is constantly drawn from the cerebral to the primitive--by his mother's infirmities, as well as by Nelly's attractions. THE LOST DOG makes brilliant use of the conventions of suspense and atmosphere while leading us to see anew the ever-present conflicts between our bodies and our minds, the present and the past, the primal and the civilized.

About the Author: Michelle de Kretser is a Sri Lankan who has lived in Australia since 1972. She has taught literature at Melbourne University and worked as an editor and reviewer. The Lost Dog is her third novel.

  1. We have two shih tzus ....Elmo and Bailey. LOVE THEM. Elmo is 12 years old and we refer to him as the miracle dog.... I have been through it all with him. We got him shortly after my mom car accident and he has been such a comfort. He was stolen from us at age 2, and after 4 days and a reward... he miraculously showed up. A year later he wondered off.... found him safely a few hours later.
    Last summer he was hit by a car on a busy highway outside our home... all 12 pounds of him was drug about a block. We have had full grown large dogs be killed on that highway.
    Now Elmo - took him to the emergency vet on a weekend no less, Elmo had road rash. Thats it.

    I do follow you. :)

  30. I have 3 Beagles. The youngest one is quite mischievous. He tries to eat anything he can. Has chewed open and drank a bottle of energy drink; has chewed open a can of motor oil and tried to drink that. He is one that needs constant supervision. Kind of like having a toddler. Everything has to be put way up high.

  38. My girl Auryn is a shelter-rescue dog, whitehaired German Shep Chow mix. She's not with me right now, I had to move unexpectedly and she had to stay behind with friends and will be joining me in a month.
    She's helped me through some difficult times and is "lost" right now herself.

  42. I don't have a dog right now, but I do have an African Grey Parrot! She knows how to bark like a dog. In fact she barks like 3 different dogs she has been around. When she is not barking, she is almost always either dancing, singing, talking or screaming. She knows lots of voices and about pretty much any word you can think of. She likes to boss my 3 yr. old around lol! Funny thing is, it seems like he listens to what she says more than he does to me sometimes ;p Thanks for the great giveaway!
