A heartwarming series of posthumous reflections from a golden retriever mix who got a new lease on life (literally) after being adopted at age nine by writer Martin Levin and his caretaker. By turns sweet, sad, funny, and reflective, these letters cover everything from the excitement of Angel's adoption to the terrors of airplane travel and the inevitability of old age and weight gain. Performer Susan McInerney ably takes on the change of narrating as a dog, while George Backman provides a moving postcript as Levin.
Part Lovely Bones, part Dogs of Babel, a series of letters tell Angel's story in her own words. Now deceased, the irrepressible golden retriever had been rescued from a shelter at an advanced age and given a second lease on life by author Martin Levin and his caretaker, Paula Drost. Angel's letters about her life and adventures with Levin and Drost evidence their unconditional love for her and impart precious lessons about life she was able to learn along the way because of their intervention. Levin's first book introducing Angel, All I Know About Management I Learned From My Dog, was licensed in six countries for translation months before publication.
