Everybody’s A Fool For #Dogs

everybody's fool richard russo nobody's foolOkay, so this book isn’t about dogs — but who can resist any novel that has such a handsome Jack Russell on the cover?

Everybody’s Fool is the follow-up to Richard Russo’s best-selling Nobody’s Fool, which was adapted into the charming 1995 film starring Paul Newman.

@BCEnglishDept Color Me #DogsofInstagram — no, Littlefield!

Dogs of Littlefield Suzanne BerneOf course you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but I absolutely love the hardcover jacket for The Dogs of Littlefield by Suzanne Berne.

Unfortunately, the story seems to be a rather dark comedy about dogs being poisoned in suburbia — think American Beauty meets My Dog Skip — and we all know what happened to those lead characters…

However, looking on the bright side, if this novel’s writing is as clever as the cover, then I’m sure all readers will be feeling the Berne! (Amazon)
