This copy of Walking the Dog by Bernard MacLaverty is a PB. It was published by W. W. Norton & Company in 1996. Condition: Very Good--there are two small light brown spots inside the front cover and on the front end page (one on each); book looks new otherwise.
From Library Journal
MacLaverty portrays an unsettling world in this finely drawn collection of nine stories. A man walking his dog is snatched by IRA killers, then released because he does not merit murdering. A married couple vacationing at the beach confront the ennui of middle age amid whiskey, All-Bran, and streaming ants. A bitter divorcee struggles against her own selfishness to reach her alienated daughter. An English teacher watches his friend die of cancer. With his subtle style and an eye for detail, MacLaverty turns these and other commonplaces of Irish life into transcendent events that illuminate his characters' lives in new ways. A consummate storyteller, he reveals the turbulence beneath the deceptive stillness of life and shows how it consciously, or subconsciously, influences even the smallest of decisions. Highly recommended.?Paul E. Hutchison, Bellefonte, Pa.
