AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jack & Mollie (& Her) is an exuberant and original verse novel about two very likeable dogs and their unlikely owner (Her). Albiston's poem captures the unique voices of the family pets, Jack and Mollie, and offer a gloriously oblique portrait of domestic life, as the dogs' adventures map those of the family with whom they live.

'Albiston's brilliant abilities with form enable her to craft a poetic narrative that is at once heart-warming, vibrantly playful and layered with deeper significance as the protagonist battles with Boss Dog, her own depression. The dogs' observant commentary on her life give the book its pulse, their adventures its muscle.' (Publication summary)
