Critical Praise

ONE GOOD DOG is a wonderful novel: a moving, tender, and brilliantly crafted story about two fighters --- one a man, one a dog --- hoping to leave the fight behind, who ultimately find their salvation in each other. Susan Wilson's clear and unflinching style is perfectly suited for her story that strips away the trappings and toys we all hide behind, and exposes our essential need to give and accept love in order to thrive.

—Garth Stein, New York Times bestselling author THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN.

ONE GOOD DOG will make you cry, will make you laugh, will make you feel things more than you thought possible --- and it will make you believe in second chances.

—Augusten Burroughs, bestselling author of RUNNING WITH SCISSORS

Anybody who has ever loved a dog --- or been ‘a pack of two,’ as Chance so aptly puts it --- will love ONE GOOD DOG.  This is the moving story of Adam March, a man who loses everything only to find something much greater, and it reminds us that it's animals that make us our most fully human.  I hope Susan Wilson sits and stays - forever.
