Lost Dog Competition

Kate is a middle aged woman trying to steer some order into a life that is going off the rails. When she adopts a lurcher called Wolfy, the shabby rescue dog saves her from herself. But when the dog disappears, it is up to Kate to hit the streets of London and find him. Will she save him, as he has saved her - or will she lose everything? Lost Dog is about the myth of modern womanhood and the enduring mystery of the relationship between humans and their canine companions.

To celebrate the publication Lost Dog we’re giving away a month’s worth of dog food from Edgard & Cooper and a copy of the book. Edgard & Cooper’s naturally tasty cat and dog food is something that you, your pets and our planet can feel good about. They pack their food with lots of fresh meat, use only 100% biodegradable and recyclable packaging, and donate 10% of our profit to charity each year.

    Kate is a middle aged woman trying to steer some order into a life that is going off the rails. When she adopts a lurcher called Wolfy, the shabby rescue dog saves her from herself. But when the dog disappears, it is up to Kate to hit the streets of London and find him. Will she save him, as he has saved her - or will she lose everything?

    As she trudges endlessly calling his name in the hopeless hope she may find him, she runs into other people’s landscapes and lives, finding allies amongst psychics, bloggers and mysterious midnight joggers. Trying to find her dog tests her relationship, and her sanity, to its limits – and gets her thinking about her life, and why things have turned out as they have for her. A brilliant, life-affirming memoir, Lost Dog is a book like no other about both about the myth of modern womanhood, and the enduring mystery of the relationship between human and canine.
