LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2014

SHORTLISTED FOR THE BOLINGER EVERYMAN WODEHOUSE PRIZE FOR COMIC FICTION

The first novel from Joseph O’Neill since NETHERLAND.

‘O’Neill, in this book, has come of age as a novelist … a comic masterpiece … as mordantly funny as the best of stand-up comedy … Superb’ John Banville, New York Review of Books

In 2007, a New York attorney bumps into an old college buddy – and accepts his friend’s offer of a job in Dubai, as the overseer of an enormous family fortune. Haunted by the collapse of his relationship and hoping for a fresh start, our strange hero begins to suspect that he has exchanged one inferno for another.

A funny and wholly original work of international literature, ‘The Dog’ is led by a brilliantly entertaining anti-hero. Imprisoned by his endless powers of reasoning, hemmed in by the ethical demands of globalized life, he is fatefully drawn towards the only logical response to our confounding epoch.

Barking in Dubai

 on 10 October 2014
By J. Sweetman
It’s a funny book, enjoyable in its won way and well observed. Dubai must be a weird place to live and the adjustments the rather unpleasant narrator makes to his moral compass in order to survive are not totally beyond the pail, just a degree or so above what we all do to survive in UKIP Britain! The narrator is not only hard to like but almost friendless so the picture we get of him builds by very slow degrees which I enjoyed. I’d like a go in his chair as well!! This is a bit of a man’s book, I suspect, and I’m not sure that female readers would give him the time of day to finish the book but I was sufficiently entertained to go on and if you have the time to read because you employ a cleaner it might make you reflect for a moment! You might think twice if you have a dog as well!

Seriously funny, and at times painfully realistic, The Dog is a wonderful drowning in ourpost-post-modern nightmare; a devil’s guide to the banality and depersonalisation of the of the world we have somehow come to believe is progressn. Better than Netherland, this is one of the most singular novels I have ever read, as if Balzac was channelling Foster Wallace.

An ironic view of the get-rich-quick jet set society in financial services in Dubai vs the servitude of those who built it and keep it running. Or are they all slaves? Very funny and perceptive once you get the hang of the convoluted phraseology. It is about brains, alienation and rootlessness. It is the 21st century.
