A Dog in Brooklyn, an Artworld Adventure by E. Merwin
Have you ever loved a dog, a work of art or any part of Brooklyn past, present or yet to be discovered?
Call me Piccolo. So begins the tale of a young artist who just happens to be an Italian greyhound. Setting off on his first artworld adventure, Piccolo leaves his native Venice to solve the mystery of his father’s disappearance in the City of York they call New. Eager to make art, he is soon thrown off his father’s trail when a great American sculptor offers him a space in his Brooklyn studio. Duped by his own desire, Piccolo labors for neither fame nor fortune–until his baptism by the fire of a hot chili pepper ignites his career.
“The writing is smart, sly and very effective, and I found myself laughing out loud at the sheer verve and nerve of the narrative and the voice. In a sea of standard mysteries and genre books, this one clearly stands out.” Writer’s Digest Competition Review
