`If you are accompanied by a dog you can talk to anyone, and anyone can talk to you - about anything ...' And they do. Edward Stourton's walks with, Kudu, his dog, become an opportunity for wonderfully unlikely encounters, and reflecting on the world from the dog-walker's perspective proves remarkably illuminating. Ed and Kudu's small trips to the park offer up big insights into romantic attachment, honour and heroism, guilt and depression, our sense of duty, beauty and the hard facts of life's pecking order. Diary of a Dog-Walker is witty, wise and will be utterly irresistible to any man or woman with a dog.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Utter magic. Edward Stourton is civilized, charming, and writes like an angel. The dogs all spring to life but this is a gorgeous book for everybody - not just for dog lovers. I love it" -- Jilly Cooper
"The sort of book that might convert even a cat-lover to the charm of canine company" -- Jane Shilling * Mail on Sunday *
"Delightful... [a] charming and thoughtful book" * The Oldie *
"Diary of a Dog-walker is a delight, combining gossipy politics and shaggy dog stories adroitly" * Time Out *
"After a career setback at BBC radio, Edward Stourton took stock of his life with these imaginative meanders with Kudu his English springer spaniel, who seemed to have an angst-free life. This is the world conceived on a canine level, interpreted with intelligent humour and human interest by his affectionate owner" -- Iain Finlayson * Saga Magazine *
