The story of the acclaimed poet's time with his two beloved retrievers - and a poignant, perceptive meditation on life, death, and the nature of canine companionship.

About the Author

Mark Doty is the author of seven poetry collections and three books of non-fiction. He has won numerous awards, including the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and the T.S. Eliot Prize. He is a professor at the University of Houston and lives in New York City.


Dog Years is about dogs, which is to say, it is about everything we cannot talk about. Although Mark Doty manages to write about what he calls "the unsayable" about our relationships with animals, and about unspeakable times of loss, Dog Years is not a dark book. It is illuminated from within by generous wonder. * Louise Erdrich *
Dog Years shows both the abundant pleasures and unavoidable heartbreak of loving people, life, and especially dogs. As someone who is in love with a dog, I found this book to be an oracle of truth. For those who have yet to love a dog, it will be a revelation. * Ann Patchett *
Mark Doty moves lyrically from the weight of a dog's head in one's hand to the enduring questions of religion, the soul, and connection. Evocative, compassionate, a love story both intimate and grand, this is a beautiful book. * Amy Hempel *

A wounding yet arresting memoir about living with his dogs - simply sublime

* Washington Post *
The beauty has a flooding effect that reverberates outward from the heart...Doty makes the unsayable sayable, bringing the ungraspable within our reach. * Los Angeles Times *
