Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] comic masterpiece.” People
“Charming…A delightful literary romp.” USA Today
“Rosoff’s first adult novel hits all the right notes for those failing at being a grown-up.” Marie Claire (London)
“A charming comedy on love, friendship, and the surprising influence of man’s best friend.” Harper’s Bazaar
“A screwball treat… [Jonathan] is a terrific romantic comic hero, the sort of endearingly flawed human character the late, great Nora Ephron might have created.” Sunday Times (London)
“A perfect listen for the carefree days of summer…Narrator Alexander Cendese augments the humor with his depiction of the perpetually conflicted twenty-something Jonathan as he tries to find contentment in work, love, and life in general. His strong characterizations of Meg Rosoff’s cast—canines and Homo sapiens alike—infuse them with authenticity, even when Rosoff is highlighting the absurdities in American society.” AudioFile
