Reviews

  • "[T]his collection of essays and illustrations comes with an exceptional pedigree"

    Shortlist
  • "The New Yorker style was one of leisurely meandering understatement, droll when in the humorous mode, tautological and litotical when in the serious mode, constantly amplified, qualified, adumbrated upon, nuanced and renuanced, until the magazine’s pale-gray pages became High Baroque triumphs of the relative clause and appository modifier."

    Tom Wolfe
  • "Only a magazine like the New Yorker could raid its archives and produce such a massive compendium of humour, illustrations, essays, fiction, poems and cartoons about dogs, or have a cast of writers which could put many a bookshop to shame....A glorious, rich collection of all things canine. If you love dogs, you will adore this book - we promise. Highly recommended."

    The Bookbag
  • "This delightful coffee table book for dog lovers features witty essays, hilarious short pieces, poems and profiles (think, Rin Tin Tin) all on, yes you guessed right: charming canines. Extracted from the American cult magazine, The New Yorker and complete with adorable illustrations from the publication too, it's guaranteed to chic up any bookshelf and will make you laugh and cry in equal measure as you read about domesticity, family, bereavement and love."

    Easy Living Magazine
  • "I usually hate anthologies…But this one works triumphantly. It is a proper lens on New York life…Above all it works because there is tremendous writing. Because of the amused insouciance, the self-deprecation, the gentle unfolding of a structural irony, the skip and reveal of the final sentence, the knowledge of Not Too Much that seems intrinsic to the New Yorker. And cartoons."

    Edmund de Waal, Spectator
