9780156033718: I Have Heard You Calling in the Night

T homas Healy was a drunk, a fighter, sometimes a writer, often unemployed, no stranger to the police. His life was going nowhere but downhill. Then one day he bought a pup—a Doberman. He called him Martin. Gradually man and dog became unshakable allies, the closest of comrades, the best of friends. They took long walks together, they vacationed together, they even went to church together. Martin, in more ways than one, saved Thomas Healy’s life.

Written with unadulterated candor and profound love, this soulful memoir gets at the heart of the intense bond between people and dogs.

From the Back Cover:

"Smart, acerbic, laconic, with nary an ounce of treacle dripping through Healy's muscular prose. A"—Entertainment Weekly

 

Thomas Healy was a drunk, a fighter, sometimes a writer, often unemployed, and no stranger to the police. His life was going steadily downhill. Then one day he bought a pup—a Doberman. He called him Martin. Gradually man and dog became unshakable allies, the best of friends. They took long walks together, they vacationed together, they even went to church together. Martin, in more ways than one, saved Thomas Healy’s life.

 

"Healy's memoir tells how the love he came to feel for Martin led him to quit drinking and fighting and make a new life. Healy's tone is whimsical more often than sentimental, but that doesn't prevent him from concluding that Martin was ‘a gift from God.’"—The Christian Science Monitor  Thomas Healy grew up in Glasgow in the 1950s. He left school at fifteen and worked as, among other things, a shunter in a railway yard, and a security guard at a meat market. He is the author of a book about boxing, A Hurting Business, and two novels: It Might Have Been Jerusalem and Rolling. He lives in Glasgow.
