Kevin Kling, best known for his commentaries on National Public Radio's All Things Considered and his storytelling stage shows like Tales from the Charred Underbelly of the Yule Log, delivers hilarious, often tender stories to listeners everywhere with his first book, The Dog Says How.
Kling's autobiographical tales are as enchanting as they are true to life: hopping freight trains, getting hit by lightning, performing his banned play in Czechoslovakia, growing up in Minnesota, and eating things before knowing what they are.
In the comical yet poignant title story, Kling straddles the world of the ordinary and one rivaling Dante's inferno as he learns how to use voice-recognition software after a life-threatening motorcycle accident.

"His compelling stories can be just the jolt you need while waiting in traffic." (Minnesota Public Radio)
"The self-deprecating Kling is always looking to draw a laugh from his listeners, but never ignores the message behind each tale. Listeners of all ages will find themselves lured into Klings ceaselessly funny tales as he expounds on everything from taxidermy to wearing socks with sandals just to annoy people." (Publishers Weekly)
