9780007343997: Come Back, Como

The story of one man’s uncommon experiences with a dog who was determined to have nothing whatsoever to do with him.

Steven Winn wanted a dog for his family - for companionship, for laughter, for holidays together, and stories to tell. But when his daughter fell in love with a scraggly, man-hating terrier mix named Como from a local animal shelter, Winn got far more than he’d bargained for. Traumatized, single-minded, and clever, Como was bent on breaking Winn’s sanity, his bankbook, and his heart.

COME BACK, COMO is the story of one man’s valiant quest to win the love of a truly one-of-a-kind dog, a creature usually thought of as man’s best friend. With humor and pathos, Winn describes the exasperating but ultimately rewarding effects Como had on his family, the ordeals he and his dog endured together, and the greatest lesson Como taught him: that loving a dog can make us more human.

Review:

"A delightful story about the joys and deeper meanings dogs bring into our lives." – Amy Tan

"Even people who don't much care for dogs, and I am one, will be moved and entertained by Steven Winn's story of pursuit and rejection and renewed pursuit between man and pooch. Its real subject, transcending species, is the struggle for understanding between minds and hearts." – Adam Gopnik
