A seductive older widow from New York’s Upper East Side is gifted a most spiteful dog from the local pound. She dubs the scrawny and inelegant creature Dillon—a name fit for a lion.
As she falls in love with a debonair and quite well-connected magnate, the dog quickly becomes embroiled in a fight for survival—and for the lady’s heart.
“Silverberg’s debut hits the same bittersweet notes that endear other animal-centric books, such as John Grogan’s 2005 memoir Marley & Me, to readers. . . . [Dillon] pays special attention to setting, painting the change of seasons in New York and the stiff atmosphere of the Upper East Side, in particular, to perfection. . . . A pleasant story for dog lovers with a captivating setting and charismatic lead.” —Kirkus Reviews
