    Review quote
    "The title says it all. It's from the "New Yorker"! It's about dogs! . . . And, of course, it has wonderful cartoons. . . . Marvelous . . . A must-have."--"Booklist" "Do you have a dog lover in your family or circle of friends? Do you need to get them a holiday gift? Look no further. "The Big New Yorker Book of Dogs" is a terrific book. . . . Big in dimension, quantity and quality."--Forbes.com "I usually hate anthologies. . . . But this one works triumphantly. . . . Above all it works because there is tremendous writing. Because of the amused insouciance, the self-deprecation, the gentle unfolding of a structural irony, the skip and reveal of the final sentence, the knowledge of Not Too Much that seems intrinsic to the "New Yorker". And cartoons."--Edmund De Waal, "The Spectator"
