Editorial Reviews

Review

In Knight's comic debut novel, a relationship expert turns to dog-training strategies in order to domesticate her incorrigible boyfriend and save her flagging career. . . .The book is funny in the best way: the humor propels the action rather than pausing it. . . .[T]he authorial hand is mostly well-hidden, and the prose flows like a jocular babbling brook. More impressively, the central characters transcend their stock roles and grow into legitimately compelling subjects. Incident by unlikely incident, we are pulled deeper into their lives until it is their fates (not merely their quips) that keep us turning the pages. Knight is a naturally comic writer; what is more, she is a talented storyteller. A lighthearted work with well-drawn characters and genuine laughs. (Kirkus Reviews)

Teaching your old dog new tricks simply requires the right treat--so goes the story of Dog Training the American Male, a riotous romp through relationships of the young, the old, and the restless. . . . Comedic newcomer L.A. Knight offers a fresh farce replete with a cast of well-drawn characters, fast-paced wit, and merging cinematic storylines that triumph as a novel, but would feel equally right on a London stage, as a Netflix original, or in a theater near you. Dog Training is a new look at age-old male-female quandaries, but also a book for mature readers that will find more than one male looking at himself--and suddenly realizing why he's so eager to help with the dishes. (The Mountain Times)

Laugh out loud funny! What really makes this book connect with everyone is that men and women have been trying to change, or at least understand, each other for centuries, and this book takes a different approach to that issue. . . .Both sexes will enjoy this quirky take.(ManhattanWithATwist.com)

A spirited romp through a peculiar carnival of fascinatingly fresh and ultimately irresistible characters. (The Examiner)

About the Author

L.A. Knight was the first pup born to a litter of four. Managing to escape from several disobedient schools in Philadelphia and a failed mating with a Shih-tzu from New York, L.A. relocated to South Florida and quickly went in heat over a gorgeous poodle who was still nursing two pups from a prior breeding. The couple had produced two pups of their own when L.A. penned DOG TRAINING THE AMERICAN MALE.
