What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“The title says it all. It’s from the New Yorker! It’s about dogs! . . .  And, of course, it has wonderful cartoons. . . . Marvelous . . . A must-have.”—Booklist

“Do you have a dog lover in your family or circle of friends?  Do you need to get them a holiday gift?  Look no further.  The Big New Yorker Book of Dogs is a terrific book. . . . Big in dimension, quantity and quality.”—Forbes.com

“I usually hate anthologies. . . . But this one works triumphantly. . . . Above all it works because there is tremendous writing. Because of the amused insouciance, the self-deprecation, the gentle unfolding of a structural irony, the skip and reveal of the final sentence, the knowledge of Not Too Much that seems intrinsic to the New Yorker. And cartoons.”—Edmund De Waal, The Spectator
