Publisher's Summary

It’s the night of the Yellow Puff-Ball Mushroom Cloud, and a mysterious yellow fog is making its way across the world, sowing chaos in its path. Mt. Fuji has erupted. The Euphrates has run dry. In America, the White House is under attack by giant bears, the president is missing, and the vice president has turned into a bichon frise. It’s apocalypse time, my friends. 

Soon, the Beast will rise. Six unlikely women must make the perilous journey to the Pit of Nethalem, where they will stop the Beast from fulfilling its evil purpose or die trying. 

The Book of Dog is a novel of startling originality: a tale of female friendship, politics, religion, demon possession, motherhood, love, betrayal, and occasional apocalypse. It’s a contemporary Candide with a dollop of Animal Farm and a dash of Metamorphosis thrown in. It wryly explores how even the most insignificant and powerless of people, when working together, can change the world. 

Along with The Book of Dog, she is the author of the novel After (FSG). Lark lives in Santa Cruz, California.

Critic Reviews

“Lark Benobi unabashedly takes on modern politics in all its bestial madness in The Book of Dog, celebrating the joys of womanhood, diversity, and the wonders of nature.... [A] triumphant tale about marginalized people who work together to effect the greater good.” (Foreword Reviews)

“Benobi’s story offers wonderfully surreal moments rich with metaphor.... [A] fantasy tale with unforgettable characters and a convincing, insightful message.” (Kirkus Reviews)
