About the book
Heartbreak is all-encompassing, it thunders into our lives unannounced only to leave us cold and alone. But what if there is an escape from heartbreak? What if we don’t have to wallow in our own pain for months on end? If we don’t have to feel that desire for another anymore? If we no longer lie awake at night from the gnawing ache of missing them, if we no longer feel stabs of pain at seeing a couple in love?
I Don’t Want to Be a Dog is a novella about a woman who decides to turn herself into a dog in order to be reunited with her ex-lover. She will be able to love him freely, whine when he leaves the room, snuggle up against him on the couch and growl at every intruder.
