This exciting Audiobook version of the groundbreaking hardback novel, which includes over 20 original and compelling songs, is the fascinating tale of the ‘Lonely Dog’ – an orphan hound growing up in Alveridgea, where cats and dogs live alongside each other, but on quite different sides of the tracks. A fable of finding purpose amidst social division, it is highly relevant to today's world.
Lonely Dog is a story of music and passion, love and loss, defeat and victory. But beneath its action packed surface lies a tale that is nuanced with compelling themes, multiple layers of intrigue, and quite a few surprises.
This colorful, whimsical, and moving saga follows the journey of Arthur Snout, nicknamed “Lonely Dog” in his youth. Abandoned on the cold steps of a Houndside orphanage, the small un-houndish pup grows up on the hard scrabble, working class side of town, where motorbike gangs mingle with milkmen and everything is faded, including dreams.
Bullied and misunderstood, Lonely is hounded from town to town and ultimately becomes a refugee in his own country. With a price on his head, all that this shy reluctant hero cares about is the guitar on his back and his one true love. But fate has a much more urgent and vital plan for his life.
Some call him a troubadour, others a troublemaker. It is said that Lonely Dog’s songs became legends long before he did, but he caught up, and the whole world listened.
This is his story.
