What to expect

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Lost Dog written and ready by Kate Spicer.

‘It’s a fabulous book…I couldn’t put it down.’ Jane Fallon

Meet woman’s best friend.

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.

Critics Review

  • It’s a fabulous book…I couldn’t put it down.

    Jane Fallon
  • You do not need to be a ‘dog person’ to be swept along by Kate Spicer’s candid, funny, heart-wrenching story of finding and falling for Wolfy, a rescue lurcher, only to lose him again when he disappears. The love of a dog and the kindness of strangers shine like a light throughout.

    Amanda Brookfield
  • Kate Spicer made me care about a f***ing dog. I don’t know who I am anymore.

    John Niven
  • This book is proof you can teach an old dog new tricks.
