Biography & Memoir - Published: 21/Feb/2018 - ISBN: 9781611855142

In 1990, Myles chose Rosie from a litter on the street, and their connection instantly made an indelible impact on the writer's way of being. Starting from the emptiness following Rosie's death, Afterglow launches a playful and incisive investigation into the mostly mutually beneficial, sometimes reprehensible power dynamics between pet and pet-owner. At the same time, it reimagines Myles's experiences with alcoholism and recovery, intimacy and mourning, celebrity and politics, spirituality and family history. Afterglow combines elements of science fiction, screenplay, monologue, and memory to get to the heart of the connection some people experience with their dog.
