The Lost Dog
Just like its cover, a book shouldn't be judged by its title, as The Lost Dog proves. Like Michelle de Kretser's previous novels The Hamilton Case and The Rose Grower, The Lost Dog isn't the simple tale its title suggests, but a sublime collision of many things. Set in contemporary Australia and mid-20th century India, the story of Tom Loxley searching for his missing dog unfolds into a haunting tale of mystery, love, home and wonder.
