A BIG LITTLE LIFE
by Dean Koontz
Dean Koontz’s first ever nonfiction book is the deeply moving story of his life with his good dog Trixie.
Dean Koontz is known for exploring the dark side of human nature in his fiction. But his softer, playful side comes out when he talks about his beloved dog, Trixie, a golden retriever. Trixie had a special place in Dean’s heart and now in his first non-fiction book, Dean opens his heart to his readers to give us memories of Trixie, of the glorious dog who changed him and changed his life.
There’s everything in this memoir: adventure, mischief, emotion, and sadness too. Dean will talk with joy about the many gifts Trixie gave him – and the lessons she taught – and he’ll talk with sadness at losing his beloved pet. The loss of a dog is a heartbreak that’s been experienced by a great many people, and Dean’s delving into that loss is a powerful part of this book, and a cathartic experience for those of us who have loved and lost an animal companion. Trixie had a big little life and lives for ever in Dean’s heart… and in these pages.
