Overview

From a humble basset hound breeding farm in New Jersey to high-end Park Avenue domicile and beyond, author Peter Rowley serves up a charmingly picaresque view of the world as perceived thirteen inches off the ground by lovable, floppy-eared protagonist, Amelia.
In Memoir of a Park Avenue Basset Hound, fate smiles upon this all-seeing pooch when she barely manages to slip into this world while tragically losing her mother and siblings. As she grows, no detail escapes her sad-eyed, sardonic scrutiny as she candidly shares cravings and passions, personal philosophy, and her yearning for four-legged companionship. And, of course, comes the day that Bo--an endearing male cockerpoo weighing all of six pounds--enters the life of sixty-five-pound Amelia, instantly triggering a seismic retilting of her universe.


Memoir of a Park Avenue Basset Hound narrates a delightful story about Amelia's clear-eyed gaining of wisdom, her doting family, and her gratitude for a second chance at life in the never-a-dull-moment Rowley household. It offers a renewed insight and appreciation of man's best friend.


"In this hilarious and touching memoir, Peter Rowley remains unquestionably one of the most surprisingly unsung writers amongst New York literati--and once again, he dazzles us."

- Armand Assante
