Praise

Advance praise for Water Dogs

“Lewis Robinson is a terrific writer, and in Water Dogs he evokes the moods and landscapes of Maine as deftly as he examines the conflicts and alliances within a family. This is a smart, suspenseful, absorbing first novel.”
–Curtis Sittenfeld, author of American Wife

“Lewis Robinson writes with authority and grace about the complications of sibling love: jealousies, disappointments, old hurts, and blind devotion. The siblings in Water Dogs, despite their unusual circumstances, are thoroughly convincing, with an underlying sweetness that betrays the author’s big, beautiful heart.”
–Monica Wood, author of Any Bitter Thing

“The disappearance of a man during a snowstorm is just the first of many intriguing mysteries layered in Lewis Robinson’s luminous novel. Among the other enigmas are the ways we find love, or lose it; the shifting tides of family loyalty; and the endless pull of home. Wonderfully rooted in its Maine landscape, Water Dogs is a compelling and poignant book.”
–Alix Ohlin, author of Babylon and Other Stories

“Lewis Robinson is an irresistible storyteller. I’ve spent some time in Maine and, well, apologies to all you hockey-playing, urchin-harvesting hard asses up there, it’s not my idea of Vacationland. But from the first sentence of Robinson’s wry yet headlong prose, I found myself devouring the place. This is a wonderful novel.”
–Sean Wilsey, author of Oh the Glory of It All
