Summary

Meet woman's best friend.

Kate is a middle-aged woman trying to steer some order into a life that is going off the rails. When she adopts a lurcher called Wolfy, the shabby rescue dog saves her from herself. But when the dog disappears, it is up to Kate to hit the streets of London and find him. Will she save him, as he has saved her - or will she lose everything?

As she trudges endlessly calling his name in the hopeless hope she may find him, she runs into other people’s landscapes and lives, finding allies amongst psychics, bloggers and mysterious midnight joggers. Trying to find her dog tests her relationship, and her sanity, to its limits - and gets her thinking about her life and why things have turned out as they have for her. 

A brilliant, life-affirming memoir, Lost Dog is an audiobook like no other about both about the myth of modern womanhood and the enduring mystery of the relationship between human and canine.

Shaggy dog story

Amazing what a dog can do, like repair a fractured relationship and get a daft bint off drugs. Very funny and poignant.
