Publisher Description

Winner, Prime Minister's Literary Award for Fiction 2010. This edition comes with an introduction by Yann Martel, author of The Life of Pi.


Abandoned in a big city at the onset of winter, a hungry four-year-old boy follows a stray dog to her lair. There in the rich smelly darkness, in the rub of hair, claws and teeth, he joins four puppies suckling at their mother's teats. And so begins Romochka's life as a dog.


Weak and hairless, with his useless nose and blunt little teeth, Romochka is ashamed of what a poor dog he makes. But learning how to be something else…that's a skill a human can master. And one day Romochka will have to learn how to be a boy.


The story of the child raised by beasts is timeless. But in Dog Boy Eva Hornung has created such a vivid and original telling, so viscerally convincing, that it becomes not just new but definitive.


'Dog Boy is a wonderful novel, a tour de force.' Guardian
