A woman meets an amber-eyed, sixty-pound boxer in a city park and falls in love. Their first year honeymoon was a discovery of each others idiosyncrasies-morning dog or evening dog? Television watcher or reader? Then life settles into routine and the once rebelliously high-spirited, independent woman and her bilingual comedian of a dog realize that theyre happily stuck with each other. In this witty, sharp memoir, Louise Bernikow charts eight years with Libro the boxer as they travel through Manhattan...and that thing called Life. From book tours to beach houses, from Libros training as pet therapist after 9/11 to his escapades on the campaign trail, Louise plays Jack to Libros Jackie. But as Louise all too soon discovers, the stray she rescued is domesticating her. A book about a modern family of two, about joy and grief, and realizing that the life youve made (even if it doesnt include a wedding ring) is more than enough, Dreaming in Libro will bring a wagging tail to any reader.
