Product Details

Praise

“One of the greatest books ever written by anybody in the world.” —Truman Capote

“I remain an amused admirer of My Dog Tulip, partly because J. R. Ackerley tried to deliver the thoroughly physical world that dogs inhabit. It’s anthropomorphism in reverse, albeit with a human (and very British) narrator.” Gail Caldwell, The New York Times Book Review

“One of the bona-fide dog-lit classics.” —The New Yorker

The Boston Globe

“This is one of the greatest masterpieces of animal literature.” —Christopher Isherwood

“Out of print for years, Tulip is now back to amaze, amuse, and somewhat dismay those lucky enough to receive her.” —Boston Globe

“I love this book because it shows respect and profound understanding of the animal on its own terms.” —Armistead Maupin

“To dog lovers, by the way, I recommend My Dog Tulip by J. R. Ackerley—by far the best “animal book” I’ve ever read.”  —Julia Glass, National Book Award-winning author

“[Ackerley] aimed to shock, and his success was heightened by the soapbubble sparkle and lightness of his prose.” —The New Criterion

“In its own quirky fashion, Ackerley’s wry valentine to his beloved pet is as much a book about the difficult art of living and loving as it is a dog story.” —Publishers Weekly
