Twelve daring, twisted, searingly funny short stories from a young writer with a startling imagination. DOGWALKER evokes a world of misfits, of bizarre circumstance and horrific outcomes. With his gift for deadpan dialogue and outrageous incident, and a knack for revealing innocence in the midst of profound depravity, Arthur Bradford offers up a blazingly funny, wholly original, and unexpectedly compassionate vision.
