I picked this book up simply because of the cover and the title. I hadn't heard anything about it before picking it up.

It's really, really good.

I've read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Smilla's Sense of Snow over the past year and noticed a striking similiarity between the two heroines. it was refreshing to read a book that doesn't stick to that female character.

Doghead is a family history as well as a slight tragedy and very funny. The story starts at the end of World war II and continues to the modern day. it is about the ties that bind people together, sibling love and rivalary as well as mushrooms.
