Staff Reviews

The New Yorker magazine and our favorite four-legged friends—it's a perfect combination. With a foreword by Malcolm Gladwell, this oversize, full-color canine celebration includes poems, fiction, essays and, of course, cartoons, from the likes of Roald Dahl, James Thurber, Ogden Nash and Susan Orlean. You really can't miss with this one. Dog lit at its best.

— Stan Hynds

 This copious collection, beautifully illustrated in full color, features articles, fiction, humor, poems, cartoons, cover art, drafts, and drawings from the magazine’s archives.

Liebling, Alexandra Fuller, Jerome Groopman, Jeffrey Toobin, T. Coraghessan Boyle, Ogden Nash, Donald Barthelme, Jonathan Lethem, Mark Strand, Anne Sexton, and Cathleen Schine.

About the Author

The New Yorker magazine began publishing in 1925.

Praise For…

“The title says it all. It’s from the New Yorker! It’s about dogs! . . .  And, of course, it has wonderful cartoons. . . . Marvelous . . . A must-have.”—Booklist

“Do you have a dog lover in your family or circle of friends?  Do you need to get them a holiday gift?  Look no further.  The Big New Yorker Book of Dogs is a terrific book. . . . Big in dimension, quantity and quality.”—

“I usually hate anthologies. . . . But this one works triumphantly. . . . Above all it works because there is tremendous writing. Because of the amused insouciance, the self-deprecation, the gentle unfolding of a structural irony, the skip and reveal of the final sentence, the knowledge of Not Too Much that seems intrinsic to the New Yorker. And cartoons.”—Edmund De Waal, The Spectator
