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.
Once abandoned and now enjoying the comforts of a loving home, Dillon is ugly and ill-tempered. But he is the most spirited one. Is he an angel—a real angel?
It’s a love story, an adult family drama, and a courtroom saga all in one, with a New Yorker’s sense of humor––and its surprise ending will revive pangs of long-lost heartbreak that exist in all of us.
DILLON is a funny, sad, and heartwarming story with a dab of preternatural flair. Laugh and cry—it’s a must read.
A gifted writer struggling to finish his debut novel, about a Soviet orphan enlisted as a government agent during the height of glasnost, learns that his eccentric father is terminally ill. Father and son each strives to take control of his own unraveling destiny and seeks closure in this dramatic chapter of his own life.
In 1980s New York City, a college graduate lands a gig as a limousine driver working for his lawyer-father’s friend, and is soon hired to transport all manner of the city’s business and celebrity high life and underbelly of mobsters, pimps, and hoodlums. Our protagonist’s rear-view mirror initiation into society, intended as a summer education in the ways of the world by dad, stretches into a two-year odyssey peppered with colorful characters who thrust him into the most outrageous of circumstances – sometimes dangerous, at times saddening, but always hilarious.
A Story of Polina Sokolov
A young orphan enlists as a Soviet agent during the height of glasnost in the 1980s, enters into a forbidden affair, and seeks forgiveness and absolution in the remote reaches of war-torn Africa. Dangerous, dark, and heart-wrenching.
