All dog lovers will rejoice in this charming and funny book’ -Jilly Cooper.

Two world travellers meet at a party and realize, as they spend the evening in each other’s company, that they are meant to be together. Enter Joshua, an irresistible cocker spaniel, and the couple’s life is transformed forever.

The Book of Joshua is a joyous romp through Paris and the South of France and from the colonial city of Bangalore to the sun-splashed beaches of Goa and the blue mountains of the Nilgiris as the irrepressible pair of humans and their pack of four-legged friends coast from crises to parties and from disasters to miracles. If you’ve ever laughed with Gerald Durrell or cried over Black Beauty, or simply love animals, this book is for you – a dog and a mistress you’ll never forget.
