Review

PRAISE FOR MERRILL MARKOE
 
Nose Down, Eyes Up
 
“Read this novel for its nose-to-the-ground wisdom, for its unsentimental take on family, and for the funniest, furriest pack of jokesters this side of the Marx Brothers.”—O: The Oprah Magazine
 
“Whimsical . . . an ideal place to bury your nose.”—Los Angeles Times
 
“Hilarious.”—Publishers Weekly
 
Walking in Circles Before Lying Down
 
“Bound to make you laugh out loud.”—People (four stars)
 
“Fun and charming . . . So spin around three or four times, curl up with your four-legged friend and enjoy.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram
 
“A delight.”—Boston Sunday Globe


From the Hardcover edition.

About the Author

Emmy Award–winning writer Merrill Markoe lives in Los Angeles, California, the garden spot of America, with four dogs and a man. She has authored three books of humorous essays and the novels Nose Down, Eyes Up; Walking in Circles Before Lying Down; and It’s My F---ing Birthday and co-authored (with Andy Prieboy) the novel The Psycho Ex Game. A lot of additional information about her—including a long bio, goofy videos, etc.—can be found at merrillmarkoe.com. After great amounts of hesitation, she is also on Facebook. But since she thinks about pulling the page down on a daily basis, check fast.
