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.
John Donovan was a novelist and a playwright, who also served as the president of the Children's Book Council. I'll Get There. It Better Be Worth the Trip. was originally published in 1969 and reprinted by Dell in 1973.More about John Donovan...
