Review

As much a portrait of a vanished world as the autobiography of a well-loved author told through touching takes of canine companions Big Issue A captivating (in no way barking) autobiography. Dogs take the leading role, but it is also about troublesome husbands, wonderfu houses, a surprising life Observer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

By V. Schmidt on December 12, 1997
Format: Paperback
I loved this book! I have bought several copies to give as gifts, but will keep one for myself to re-read. Elizabeth von Armin's relationship with the people, dogs, and houses in her life is recounted with a great deal of charm, wit, and droll humor.

Format: Paperback
Elizabeth von Arnim lived an unconventional life, shot through with both tragedy and personal success. It is characteristic of the sense of humor found in her writing that she should ignore the sparkling social circle of which she was a part at the turn of the century and choose instead to write the lives of her dogs.

Throughout the book we are given tantalising glimpses of the turbulance - and joy - of von Arnim's wider experiences. This short work will delight both dog-lovers and fans of the author

Format: Paperback
This book is a throughly charming account of Elizabeth von Arnim's sometimes idyllic, sometimes challenging but always witty and amusing life with her beloved dogs. Her writing reflects the experiences of her happy days in Germany with her older husband, five children, and the beginning of many canine characters that inhabit her life. Elizabeth is widowed and moves on to England, Switzerland, and Provence. Each new stage of her life includes new dogs and many funny and poignant memories. She clearly loves her many dogs- some stand out among all of them as her favorites- and shares her life as enriched and enlivened by her dogs' companionship. Anyone who has ever loved and lost a dog will appreciate her regard and love of dogs.

This gives a little insight into her life, but not as much as I had hoped. She is an intriguing figure in need of a real biography.
