"There Is No Dog: A Novel"
By Rich Fisher
Tulsa, OK – Today on ST we speak by phone with the Boston-born, U.K.-based author Meg Rosoff, who's written several award-winning novels for young adults. Her latest effort (published last year in Britain and just out here in the States) is really intended for adults as well as YA readers. It's called "There Is No Dog," and it's an off-the-wall and quite satirical work that images God as a teenaged boy named Bob. In a starred review in Booklist, one critic called this novel "wildly inventive and laugh-out-loud funny." And Publishers Weekly has noted: "There's no denying that Rosoff's writing and sense of humor are a force of nature." Also on today's program, our commentator Barry Friedman has a strange but true confession: his girlfriend killed a fish.
