Denizet-Lewis’ own ador­ing, some­times slightly neu­rotic re­la­tion­ship with Casey (see the en­try in which he sees a shrink spe­cial­iz­ing in pet re­la­tion­ships) lands him in good stead to un­der­stand the depths of the bond be­tween man and dog, and his quest to ex­plore the lives of dog lovers all across the coun­try yields fas­ci­nat­ing and touch­ing sto­ries il­lus­trat­ing just how pow­er­ful, spe­cial, and deep our shared bond re­ally is. A thor­oughly en­gross­ing look at our en­dur­ing love af­fair with man’s best friend.
