WHITE ON DOGS, his granddaughter and manager of his literary estate, Martha White, has compiled the best and funniest of his essays, poems, letters, and sketches depicting over a dozen of White’s various canine companions.

(‘I just saw an eagle go by. It was carrying a baby.’) From The New Yorker’s ‘The Talk of the Town’ are some little-known Notes and Comment pieces covering dog shows, sled dog races, and the trials and tribulations of city canines. Some previously unpublished photographs from the E. B. White Estate show the family dogs, from the first collie, to various labs, Scotties, dachshunds, half-breeds, and mutts, all well-loved.

Reviews:

“Impossible to resist! “ -Joe Coomer, author The Loop, Pocketful of Names, Apologizing to Dogs, and other books.

“E. B. White, dog enthusiast and keen observer, liked to opine about what made his many dogs do what they did. Predating the blogosphere by nearly a century, White’s personable storytelling retains its freshness and immediacy and will charm and enlighten a new generation of dog-lovers.” -Claudia Kawczynska, Editor in Chief, The Bark

“What a wonderful gift, to see E. B. White’s writing on dogs published in one volume. White brought to dogs the same brilliant qualities he brought to his writings about life–his gentleness, perceptiveness, and rich, sometimes biting humor. He got dogs, loved them dearly, saw them clearly, wrote about them brilliantly. This is a necessary work for any dog- or animal-lover.” -Jon Katz, author of the new collection of short stories, Dancing Dogs, and many other books, lives at Bedlam Farm
