Maira Kalman’s Beloved Dog
went on sale from Penguin Press on Tuesday (10/27) and dog lovers everywhere are delighted.
She gives voice to the dogs she adores, noting that they are constant reminders that life reveals the best of itself when we live fully in the moment and extend unconditional love. Maira’s style is instantly recognizable – from books like And the Pursuit of Happiness
and The Principles of Uncertainty
, to her collaboration with Michael Pollan on an illustrated Food Rules
, and her bestselling edition of Strunk and White’s The Elements of Style
, her work is both joyful and wise. Now, this renowned artist and author explores the joys and lessons of having “the dearest, funniest, lovingest, loyalist” of friends – a canine companion. Her wonderful essay about her own dog, Pete, appeared in the October 18 issue of The New York Times Book Review.
Look for a “My Week” essay (with original art) by Maira in this Saturday’s Wall Street Journal.
Additional interviews are coming on Vogue.com and in The Huffington Post.
