GOOD BOY: Coming Spring 2020
A memoir of dogs, and of masculinity, centered around seven dogs Boylan owned pre-transition. There is Playboy, the Dalmatian of Boylan’s boyhood, who ate the Thanksgiving turkey off the table; there is Matt the Mutt, the dog of college, who “lived a life given over totally to pleasure.” These dogs show us a woman’s boyhood– but they show us something more. It is the love of dogs that help us survive, and become ourselves. We wuff what we wuff, not what wuffs us.
“Gorgeous…a voyage through the moral needle of the world. Good Boy turns out to be much less of a paean to Boylan’s constant canine companions, and much more of a journey through her own psyche. What do we keep, even as we lose pieces of ourselves? The dog at your feet while you’re reading already knows the answer.”
— Jodi Picoult, NYT Bestselling author of SMALL GREAT THINGS and LEAVING TIME
