What can we learn from the gentle art of listening? With affection and wit, artist and writer Megan Anderson has assembled characters from the dog world to put a canine face on human observations - those things that occupy our thoughts, and delight, move or perplex us. By imagining dogs as the bearers of candid human thoughts, Word of Dog offers a glimpse into the beauty of the everyday - a joy for readers of all breeds and temperaments.
Megan Anderson is an artist and writer based in Fremantle. She paints under the guise of Hangdog Art, and has been a feature writer for The West Australian newspaper, editor of Scoop magazine, and a travel writer for various publications around Australia. She writes stories about humans, and takes direction from a complex golden retriever with a foot fetish.
