Rocky & Gawenda

The Story of A Man & His Mutt

Book - 2009
Rate this:
Funny, sad, and full of delightful surprises, this series of vignettes chronicles the friendship between journalist Michael Gawenda and his furry dog of indeterminate breeding, Rocky, as they engage in conversation about dogs, love, memory, the meaning of work, and the passing of time. Part memoir, part social observation, this compilation reflects not only on Gawenda's personal life--including the story of his Polish-Jewish immigrant family--but also on current events and the state of the world. Based on a popular Australian blog, this is a celebration of the love between man and his canine--and what they learn from each other about living in the moment.
