And the Puppy Howls No Longer
Eric’s in recovery and the puppy is housebroken; it howls, yowls, and whines no longer, which is more than can be said for the rest of Eric’s self-made family. Post-surgery, Eric is healing, mourning, and learning to walk, see, and be again – he’s back in the land of the living, and the living drive him nuts. Friends, family… the Ex. While he was out of it, they’ve been odd at best, self-centered, ego-centric, selfish maniacs at worst. But that’s family… And Eric has to push forward. Sell his home, heal his wounds, and move on with his life – wherever it heads next. “And the Puppy Howls No Longer” continues the story of getting back up after being hit by everything modern American life can throw.

Sometimes you just get the right book at the right moment and this was it for me. The stories in the press, the stories in the book, everything ties up and I felt like I was meant to read this book right now. If you believe in kismet, then maybe you were meant to be reading this review right now.
Here’s the thing: I like experimental writing but I know it’s an acquired taste. No one else has written about And The Puppy Howls No Longer and talked about the way the author writes in this strange stream of consciousness style where ideas dribble out, get repeated, re-grafted. I really got swept along by it, and I know not everyone will, but it’s a refreshingly different way to tell a story. There’s no big thing of this made in the blurb either so I guess the author is just trying to tell a story but if this was from a big publisher they would be all over the prose, with quotes from all sorts of avantgarde writers. Just an opinion. You see what you think…
This book continues along the same lines as the first book in the series, which works for me as I, to my surprise, enjoyed that a fair bit. We have more of the same here except that the author’s writing is a little more polished and his ideas come across a little more clearly. The story feels very of its time and I think it’s one that a lot of people would do well to pick up.
Good, I liked this. I have read Mr. Lee’s books before so I knew what I was going to be getting and I wasn’t disappointed.
Wow, second book is even more special than the first. This magic book fully focused on how circumstances of Modern American Family are changing by the second, but a puppy’s affection remains the same all the time.
Fantastic piece of writing, well written and clear indeed.
I like to be surprised by a book and “And the Puppy Howls No Longer” did do that for me. Don’t be fooled and think it is a story about a dog because it isn’t, it is about people and that’s more important in the story.
You should read these books to laugh. I have the last two of them and they both are funny. E P Lee is a funny writer that you will enjoy.
Second good book from this author
