The Dogs
The Dogs
A Modern Bestiary

Press Reviews

"A snarling attack on the fairytale form. A good girl's fears of inadequacy materialize as a pack of vicious dogs." - Publishers Weekly

"A strange and wonderful first-person voice emerges from the stories of Rebecca Brown, who strips her language of convention to lay bare the ferocious rituals of love and need." - The New York Times

"Using unsentimental language that slices, pries and exposes layers of emotion and sexuality as a scalpel does a body, Brown veers into the uncharted territory." - The San Francisco Chronicle


"I read everything Rebecca Brown writes, watch for her books and hunt down her short stories. She is simply one of the best contemporary lesbian writers around." -Dorothy Allison

"A dry, witty, graceful–if savage–gift." -Mary Gaitskill
