A starkly beautiful offering from Coe, who so often uses her artistic gifts to explore the darkest aspects of human nature. In this book, a pit bull recounts her hapless life moving from one harsh situation to another. Merritt Clifton of "Animal People News" has estimated that the average American pit bull's lifespan lasts only eighteen months. Sadly, many real life pit bulls' lives may be just as tragic and abbreviated as this fictional dog's.

Not for the faint of heart, heart breaking but beautiful and compelling. A very small book, can be read in an hour.
