A group of elegant monster dogs in top hats, tails, and bustle skirts become instant celebrities when they come to New York in 2008. Refugees from a town whose residents had been utterly isolated for a hundred years, the dogs retain the nineteenth-century Germanic culture of the humans who created them. They are wealthy and ...

A tail for all ages

by Pete946 on May 6, 2010

This unique story, the author's first outing, was a delightful read. I whipped through it in two days. The story of a successful, albeit well-hidden, experiment to infuse dogs with human intelligence, and their subsequent impact on the New York City social scene, as seen through the eyes of a young woman of that city, will keep you riveted. I'm quite certain we'll be hearing and reading more from the pen of Kirsten Bakis.
