About this item
Nadine is a British widow living on a Greek island in the Cyclades who adopts a dog called Charlton. But she has no idea what looking after a dog entails: the attention, the care, the responsibility. As she struggles to cope with him, matters quickly get out of hand. Friends and neighbors get involved, and others try to take charge of the situation. What follows is a dark, brutally funny story that tracks the strange, enforced intimacy of life in a small island community. And Charlton is at the heart of it all.
Witty, tender, and tough, Nadine's Dog is as much about the tensions between human beings as the ups and downs of a dog's life.
