Off Leash

By (author): Dorothy Mahoney

Everyone has a dog story, from the salesman at Home Depot to the passenger on a plane who confesses about the scar on his face. The poems in Mahoney?s third collection explore the concepts of identity and ownership through rich linguistic textures and voices. From a boy?s fascination with Tom Terrific and Mighty Manfred to uniquely imagined Biblical dogs, Off Leash delves into the anguish of dogs loved and lost, and the joy of homecoming.
