For dog owners, past or present, Peter Mayle's newest novel is a delight. Listeners follow the literal tracks of Boy, a shaggy canine, and his views on wine-tasting parties, houseguests, the temptation of white bedspreads, tom-cats and humans' peculiar com-pulsion with personal hygiene. Simon Jones is a master at conveying Boy's puzzlement and outrage with deadpan perfection. His British voice provides just the right tone to the arch memoir set, once again, in the French countryside. His timing and emphasis are finely tuned and keep the listeners eager for more of Boy's escapades and droll philosophy. R.F.W.
