Andrew Blauner, an agent (but not mine) and editor of a new anthology called Coach, was asked to pick his six favorite anthologies for The Week--a magazine that mostly reprints journalism from the past week. My first dog book--Dog Culture--made the list! Here's what he says:
"Dog Culture edited by Ken Foster (Lyons Press, $17). The writers showcased here are writing not just about their own dogs but on dogs as social lubricant, and other such themes. The collection kicks off with “What Coco Ate” by National Book Award finalist Rene Steinke, and also features excellent pieces by Nicholas Dawidoff, Annie Bruno, and Pearl Abraham. Made me miss my old collie, Drummer."
