Diary of a Dog Walker
Edward Stourton’s columns, recording his regular excursions with Kudu, the Springer spaniel, appeared fortnightly in the Telegraph between June 2009 and September 2010. They form the basis for this witty, charming and revealing book of canine musings from a truly erudite commentator on life. The immediate focus might momentarily seem trivial and domestic, but the canvas proves to be immeasurably wide. Kudu’s small trips to the park offer big insights into romantic attachment, warfare, guilt and depression, honour and heroism, our sense of duty, beauty and the hard facts of life’s pecking order.
Engaging, enlightening, Diary of a Dog Walker will be utterly irresistible for any man or woman with a dog.

Delightful... [a] charming and thoughtful book.
Diary of a Dog Walker is a delight, combining gossipy politics and shaggy dog stories adroitly.
The sort of book that might convert even a cat-lover to the charm of canine company.
Mail on Sunday
Utter magic. Edward Stourton is civilized, charming, and writes like an angel. The dogs all spring to life but this is a gorgeous book for everybody - not just for dog lovers. I love it.
