Sunday press wrap up; plus upcoming tour dates

The San Francisco Chronicle The San Francisco Chronicle ran a nice review last week, which said, in part: "An absorbing and quirky memoir ...composed of straight narrative, short lists, how-to pointers, "How to Read a Dog" and "How to Lose Your Best Friend" and e-mail correspondence all about dogs, the people who care for them and those who don't. Foster's style is blunt, funny and poignant. He smoothly melds the events of his turbulent life along with the gritty details of rescuing abandoned dogs into a piece that goes to the heart." You can read the rest by clicking the link.

Also last Sunday, The New Orleans Times Picayune ran a piece about my volunteer work at the Louisiana SPCA and particularly my love for a pit bull mix named Ethel, who was in the rehab tent but now has a home. The story is here.

And then, without a single reference to dogs, The Oregonian ran a piece on a new reading series in Portland that was inspired by my work at the KGB Bar a decade ago in NYC. That one is here.
