Dog Days by Ericka Waller (Hardcover 2021)

‘Funny, sad, gritty and beautifully told, this story will make you look at life again and appreciate the small acts of kindness that make everything worthwhile.’ HAZEL PRIOR, author of AWAY WITH THE PENGUINS

‘A soulful, lyrical tale… Such a treat.’ BETH MORREY, author of SAVING MISSY

‘Tender, humorous and hopeful’ LISSA EVANS, author of V for Victory

George is very angry. His wife has upped and died on him, and all he wants to do is sit in his underpants and shout at the cricket.

The last thing he needs is his cake-baking neighbour Betty trying to rescue him. And then there’s the dog, a dachshund puppy called Poppy. George doesn’t want a dog – he wants a fight.

Dan is a counsellor with OCD who is great at helping other people – if only he were better at helping himself. His most meaningful relationship so far is with his labrador Fitz. But then comes a therapy session that will change his life.

Lizzie is living in a women’s refuge with her son Lenny. Her body is covered in scars and she has shut herself off from everyone around her. But when she is forced to walk the refuge’s fat terrier, Maud, a new life beckons – if she can keep her secret just a while longer…

Dog Days is a novel about those small but life-changing moments that only come when we pause to let the light in. It is about three people learning to make connections and find joy in living life off the leash.

‘A charming, surprising and moving story of three troubled characters’ encounter with love, grief, healing…and dogs’ CLARE CHAMBERS, author of SMALL PLEASURES
