Eric Coyote’s epic novel? Sordid and splendid.
This original and compelling tale of a drunk in Venice attempting to survive — and keep his beloved dog alive as well — has been described as “a rewarding story of a man’s unconditional love for his faithful companion” by Kirkus Reviews. It’s really Raymond Chandler and Charles Bukowski and The Cohen Brothers by way of a very talented writer. You can visit Eric Coyote’s writer’s retreat here.
