Second novel by John Donovan, author of my favorite, I'LL GET THERE. IT BETTER BE WORTH THE TRIP. Out of print, but probably available used via some of the used-books websites. About a young man and a dog, but it's not the usual sentimental story. In fact, it's pretty sad and direct, very spare. Kind of an odd book, but short and beautifully written. Worth a look.
