Read full description of the books Dogs of Babel:The Barnes & Noble Review
When Paul Iverson's wife, Lexy, is found dead in their yard, the only witness
to her death is the couple's loyal dog, Lorelei. Struck numb with grief and consumed by the need to know why his beloved Lexy died, Paul leaves his job as a linguistics
professor to take on the impossible task of teaching his dog to communicate.
With Lorelei by his side, he flashes back to the pivotal moments of his life
with Lexy: their first, weeklong date, his muddied attempts to convince her
to have a child, and their last bitter fight before her death. His journey
will lead him to unbearable secrets of Lexy's burdened heart and teach
him that the truest forms of love don't need words at all. In richly imagined prose,
Carolyn Parkhurst's debut novel is a surprising, heartwarming, and utterly
captivating story of love and coming to terms with loss. Andrew Ayala
