The Sunday Times top ten bestseller

'Lost Dog is already one of my books of the year. Spicer writes like a dream...You will love it.' India Knight, Sunday Times

'Sharply observed and deeply funny, it's one of the best, most enjoyable books of 2019 so far' British Vogue

Meet woman's best friend.

Kate is a middle aged woman trying to steer some order into a life that is going off the rails. When she adopts a lurcher called Wolfy, the shabby rescue dog saves her from herself. But when the dog disappears, it is up to Kate to hit the streets of London and find him. Will she save him, as he has saved her - or will she lose everything?

As she trudges endlessly calling his name in the hopeless hope she may find him, she runs into other people's landscapes and lives, finding allies amongst psychics, bloggers and mysterious midnight joggers. Trying to find her dog tests her relationship, and her sanity, to its limits - and gets her thinking about her life, and why things have turned out as they have for her. A brilliant, life-affirming memoir, Lost Dog is a book like no other about both about the myth of modern womanhood, and the enduring mystery of the relationship between human and canine.

Review quote

"Lost Dog is already one of my books of the year. Spicer writes like a dream, and her unblinking appraisal of her world and of her place in it feels like an act of generosity towards the reader. You will love it." -- India Knight * Sunday Times * "Kate Spicer made me care about a f***ing dog. I don't know who I am anymore." * John Niven * "Amazing... so much more than a lost dog." * Grazia * "Part love letter, part tribute to the power of never giving up hope, Lost Dog is not simply for those who like dogs. It's a mature piece of writing that never falters... It hits you right in the heart." * Literary Review * "Sharply observed and deeply funny, it's one of the best, most enjoyable books of 2019 so far" * British Vogue *
