Mary Oliver’s wise, lived-in voice is just the one you want to be pouring these dog songs into your ears, and anyone who has loved a dog will thank her for this audiobook. It’s a vivid collection of portraits of beloved beasts past and present and an exploration of the many ways we love dogs—their devotion, patience, comedy, manifold sins— and experience the pain of losing them. Many of us cherish dogs in our lives, but poets come at things differently, and no one knows better than she does how her lines should strike and fall. Her hymn to the anarchic joy of a dog off leash is one every city dog would sing every morning. An audiobook to savor and repeat. B.G. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2014]
