The Friend

Comfort. Dog lovers will be delighted to read Sigrid Nunez’ novel titled, The Friend. The narrator remains unnamed, but the Great Dane that enters her life unexpectedly has a name that suits him perfectly: Apollo. Apollo was the dog of the narrator’s mentor, a fellow writer and lifelong friend. None of the three wives of the late writer wanted to live with Apollo whose confusion at the author’s disappearance made him seem depressed. The narrator deals with her grief by taking Apollo into her small apartment where dogs are not allowed. They provide comfort to each other and comedy for many who see this unlikely couple together. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Friend from amazon.com.
