The Dogs of Avalon

W. W. Norton

Greyhounds, bred to be the fastest racing dogs on earth, are streaks of lightning. Beautiful, astonishing creatures, countless numbers of them disappear each year once they can no longer compete and win. After adopting an Irish sight hound, Laura Schenone discovers a remarkable and little-known fight to gain justice for dogs and for all animals. Schenone is the author of three books including A Thousand Years Over a Hot Stove which won a James Beard Book Award and The Lost Ravioli Recipes of Hoboken which was selected Newsday Cookbook of the Year.
