Happy pub day to WALKING THE DOG!

"Brilliant and layered." —O, THE OPRAH MAGAZINE

“A gifted writer . . . a 'badass' long before that term came into vogue.” —NEW YORK MAGAZINE

“Comically touching.” —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Former child prodigy painter and rich-girl kleptomaniac, Carleen is incarcerated after a botched heist. When finally released after two decades, she finds a job wrestling spoiled canines as a dog walker in Manhattan, relating better with the dogs than with their human owners.

Strikingly funny and self-aware, this belated coming-of-age novel asks the question: How do you restart your life after crashing your first chance at it?
