Summary "Set in present-day Australia and mid-20th century India, The Lost Dog℗ʺ is a haunting, beautifully written work that brilliantly counterpoints new cityscapes and their inhabitants with the wild, ancient continent beyond. With its atmosphere of menace and an acute sense of the unexplained in any story, The Lost Dog℗ʺ intriguingly highlights the collision of the primal and the civilised, modernity and the past and home and exile. A mystery, a love story, a celebration of dogs and the joy they bring us, and a meditation on the essence of art and nature, The Lost Dog℗ʺ is a gripping contemporary novel which explores the weight of history as well as different ways of seeing and comprehending the world."--From publisher description
