MERLE'S DOOR Lessons From a Freethinking Dog

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Patrick Lawlor

Biography & Memoir • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

When an abandoned dog tags along with Ted Kerasote on a rafting trip, it’s the start of a long life-changing experience, with a learning process that goes both ways. Patrick Lawlor seamlessly portrays Kerasote, who shares personal anecdotes about his dog, Merle, and ruminates on the history of the relationship between dogs and humans. Lawlor puts plenty of laugh-out-loud moments into the anecdotes and keeps the history lively, too. He even comes up with a good voice for Merle in Kerasote’s “conversations” with the dog. By the time listeners get to Merle’s later years, they will share the bond Kerasote has with him. J.A.S.
