Kevin Kling is a master storyteller, as anyone knows who has seen him perform or heard him on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered". Drawing on his memories - an eventful Christmas at the Klings, taxidermy class, hopping freight trains, getting struck by lightning, joining a circus, eating things before knowing what they are - he invites us into his life of growing up in Minnesota, traveling the world, and relying on the strangeness of others. He also shares tales of overcoming personal tragedy, including a congenital arm disability and a near-fatal motorcycle accident. As a result of the accident, he could no longer type and had to learn to use voice-recognition software. The computer translated the barks of his dog into "How," hence the title, "The Dog Says How".

Review:

"Having grown up in Minnesota, Kling can evoke frigid temperatures in a sentence or two; he's similarly skilled at emotional gear-shifting, drawing laughter just a few paragraphs before eliciting tears in essays like 'Prayer' and 'Rio.' Kling's collection will please any fan of his radio home, or of sister Public Radio programs 'This American Life' and 'A Prairie Home Companion'."--"Publishers Weekly" "His compelling stories can be just the jolt you need while waiting in traffic."--Minnesota Public Radio
