    1 thought on “The Big New Yorker Book of Dogs”

    1. A great coffee table book. Not all of the stories were really about dogs, though all featured dogs as a part of the plot. Great Thurber stories (and cartoons!).

    2. Ever since humans started throwing scraps to the adventurous wolves beyond the firelight, dogs have been inspiring us and drawing forth from us the full spectrum of our emotional capacity. From enjoyment, love and gratitude to exasperation, fear and cruelty, our reactions to our furry companions have been a mirror of our greatest virtues and our deepest shortcomings.

    4. A beautiful book, as New Yorker would do. The introduction from Malcolm Gladwell, one of my favorite authors, decries the lack of space for dogs in the city full of dog lovers. He also has two dog stories in here, one being "Whath the Dog Saw". I am not one for fiction, which is most of what we have here, let a lone canine tales, but some stood out: A John Cheever story, the epistoltory one from James Thurber, and a Jeffrey Toobin one about Leonna Helmsley. Always great are the New Yorker cartoo [...]

    5. A book full of stories about dogs?? How could I turn it down? I loved this book (except for the size, it was kind of ungainly). The stories range from the 1910s to the 2000s. Some are fiction, some are essays and nonfiction. Interspersed through the book are little poems, artwork, and snippets. All in common is the dog and its importance to man. Insight into a dog's character and ours along with it. I loved it.

    6. I love books and I love dogs - so I guess it's a no-brainer that I'm going to love a book about dogs. This was a gorgeous book filled with cartoons, stories (both fiction and non-fiction) and reproductions of New Yorker covers that featured dogs. The book was more non-fiction than fiction, which surprised me. But all of the stories were top-notch and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire book.

    7. An enjoyable collection of cartoons, short stories and articles published by the New Yorker magazine. I believe the oldest item in the book is from the 1930's. There are short stories by James Thurber (and many of his cartoons), an article on Cesar Milan, articles from non-dog lovers, stories by people who adore dogs. It's a very enjoyable collection.

    8. Sadly, I got bored reading this compilation of dog-related writings and stopped reading before I even got 25% of the way through. I skimmed the rest of the book and found very little of interest. This was sad to me because I LOVE dogs! And I love The New Yorker!

    9. A delightful compilation of the New Yorker's best dog-related prose, poetry, fiction, cartoons, and covers from 1925 to the present. A wonderful gift from my parents-in-law and a perfect, broad, and engaging discussion on American dogs.

    10. I'm taking my time, jumping around with this book. Believe this is best way to enjoy fully the work of some of my favorite writers and illustrators on subject of man's best friend. If you are fan of The New Yorker, I highly recommend My Years With Ross, by James Thurber.

    11. A collection of stories, poems, and cartoons all related to man's best friend. Like any collection, some are better than others and I learned some interesting tidbits about drug sniffing dogs and read a couple lousy short stories I could have skipped. Good for any dog lover.

    12. Excellent collection of both fiction and non-fiction, of which I had only read the one James Thurber story before.

    13. Thought this was just a big ol' book of New Yorker cartoons. It's not; having a hard time reading through all these words. Still good stuff though.
