Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With poignant insight into the precarious nature of human emotions, Gethers, author of nonfiction books about a beloved cat, including The Cat Who’ll Live Forever, dramatizes what it means to be vulnerable and how the pursuit of love and desire for renewal can soothe even the most tortured soul.” Booklist
Ask Bob is a funny, smart, charming, and relatable romp—with dogs! I enjoyed every page.” Julie Klam, New York Times bestselling author 
“A touching, funny story about the mystery of love—human and animal—that rings too true.” Carl Hiaasen, New York Times bestselling author
“In his latest novel, Gethers spins a modern tale of betrayal and reconciliation, failure, forgiveness, and family…A melancholy yet redeeming story of life and love, loss and redemption.” Kirkus Reviews
