Heartfelt and hilarious, this is a book for anyone who has tried to imagine what their dog is thinking.

Human beings often write about their dogs, but the dogs don't usually get a right of reply...

In Love, Clancy, Richard Glover has collated the letters sent by Clancy to his parents in the bush. They are full of a young dog's musings about the oddities of human behaviour, life in the big city and his attempts to fit in.

You'll meet Clancy as a puppy, making his first attempt to train his humans, then see him grow into a mature activist, demanding more attention be paid to a dog's view of the world. Along the way, there are adventures aplenty, involving robotic vacuum cleaners, songs about cheese, trips to the country and stolen legs of ham - all told with a dog's deep wisdom when it comes to what's important in life.

Accompanied by delightful illustrations by cartoonist Cathy Wilcox.


The Land Before Avocado

"This is vintage Glover - warm, wise and very, very funny. Brimming with excruciating insights into life in the late 60s and early 70s, it explains why this was the cultural revolution we had to have." - Hugh Mackay

"Hilarious and horrifying, this is the ultimate intergenerational conversation starter." - Annabel Crabb

"Richard Glover's just-published The Land Before Avocado is a wonderful and witty journey back in time to life in the early 1970s." - Richard Wakelin, Australian Financial Review

Flesh Wounds

"A funny, moving, very entertaining memoir." - Bill Bryson, New York Times

"The best Australian memoir I've read is Richard Glover's Flesh Wounds." - Greg Sheridan, The Australian
