What will happen to them all if the dog dies? Without euphoria, without a touch of sentimentality, with truth and humour and submerged pity, Michael Holroyd reveals twenty-four hours in the life of the Farquhar family revolving, three generations strong, around a dying dog. It is a day like any other, a dog’s life, gathering momentum and working to a climax in which irony and realism are so completely fused that laughter and sadness mingle.
