A book of essays by award-winning author and journalist David W. Berner is the next best thing to storytelling around a bonfire. In There's a Hamster in the Dashboard, Berner shares stories of "a life in pets" - from a collie that herds Berner home when the author goes "streaking" through the neighborhood as a two-year-old, to a father crying in front of his son for the only time in his life while burying the family dog on the Fourth of July.
