Because Marley “Just Didn’t Cut It”

October 9, 2009 at 5:17 am 2 comments

Berkeley Breathed, author of the Pulitzer Prize winning comic strip Bloom County has a new book out.   As quoted in the San Jose Mercury News,  Breathed said he wrote the graphic novel  “Flawed Dogs: The Shocking Raid on Westminster”  because:

I’ve always wanted to write a great, classic dog story,” Breathed said. “‘Marley and Me’ just didn’t cut it. You know, this generation’s ‘Old Yeller.’ That’s why I wrote it.”

And for that quote alone, I’m going to buy it!

    Thanks for the notice on this book. Always been a fan of Breathed since his Bloom County days.

    So, I just got my copy in the mail today. The book is good but I could hardly make it through the first chapter because it’s about dogfighting.

    But it reflects very badly on dog fighting.

    That said, it’s not a book I’d give a young child.
