This novella cannot fail to delight readers young and old, male and female, dog-loving and dog-ambivalent. Warm-hearted, funny and smartly written, Jerusalem Gap is a rare and perfect novel by the best American writer you may have never heard of. — Stan Hynds
Donald Atwell didn't want a dog. He already had an ex-wife, a balky truck, and a cat that was part Persian and part Taliban. But when a passing yokel tossed his puppy out on the side of the road, Donald didn't have much choice but to pick her up and take her in. Jerusalem Gap is the story of how, in saving a mutt, one prickly old cuss saved himself a little as well.
