Joseph O’Neill’s new novel, The Dog, is a different animal (so to speak) from Netherland, his remarkable PEN/Faulkner Award winner about a Dutch financial analyst adrift in New York in the aftermath of 9/11.

Their words help convey the depth of the trauma. They also reveal the depth of humanity and care in the doctor’s work.
