Editorial Reviews

Review

“Difficult circumstances can make or break a person—or a dog. In her affecting memoir The Dog Stays in the Picture, Susan Morse tells how she and her adopted racing greyhound, Lilly, cope with eerily similar challenges and help each other triumph.” —Cynthia A. Branigan, author of Adopting the Racing Greyhound and The Reign of the Greyhound

“Every good story about loving a dog is, at its heart, a reminder of the unwavering importance of unconditional love and a lesson that we can’t always script what life will toss at us. Morse’s touching and sometimes laugh-out-loud memoir reminds us that in the act of rescuing someone else, we often end up saving ourselves.” —Lee Woodruff, bestselling author and contributing reporter for CBS This Morning

“Susan Morse’s second memoir, The Dog Stays in the Picture, is a hectic and hilarious look at growing up and letting go. There’s a little bit of Hollywood in the story, and a lot of family, along with love and loss and sickness and health, but most of all there is Lilly, neurotic and loyal Lilly, graceful and fast, with a dramatic past and a future full of hope. Morse has written an extraordinary tale of transition for dog and human both that is not to be missed.” —William Lashner, New York Times–bestselling author of The Barkeep

“I read this book straight through one night, and as an avid reader and greyhound rescuer, there are very few books which implore me to finish them in one night. Susan’s voice is real and raucous, and I can’t wait to read it again.” —Claudia Presto, founder of Greyhound Gang

“A lively and flavorful family memoir packed with psychological turbulence, tough realism and a loving rescue dog always an arm’s length away.” —Seattle Kennel Club

About the Author

Susan Morse was educated at Williams College. She has worked as an actress in L.A. and New York and is the author of The Habit. She now lives in Philadelphia with her husband, David, and their three children, when they’re home from college.
