Rae, a playwright in Colorado, faces many life questions with the companionship of her wolfhound, Dante. Dante patiently submits to several courses of chemotherapy for cancer and makes the most of each day of life the treatment buys him. A full cast presents the story, divided into chapters narrated by many of the human characters, as well as Dante, another dog, and Stanley the cat. Performances range from a touch on the campy side to earnestly serious. Clearly, dog-lovers may enjoy this book. But it’s also a kind of coming-of-age story in which the main character is guided through the example of a dog. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
