    In 1990, Myles chose Rosie from a litter on the street, and their connection instantly became central to the writer's life and art. During the course of their sixteen years together, Myles was madly devoted to the dog's well-being, especially in Rosie's final days. Starting from the emptiness following Rosie's death, this memoir investigates the true nature of the bond between pet and pet owner. Through this lens, we witness Myles' experiences with intimacy and spirituality, celebrity and politics, alcoholism and recovery, fathers and family history, as well as the fantastical myths we spin to get to the heart of grief.
