BROWN DOG. Novellas.

New York: Grove Press, (2013). First Edition. Paperback. Uncorrected Proof. Contains all five previously published works and one new one, the complete novellas featuring the beloved recurring character Brown Dog. A bawdy, reckless, down-on-his-luck Michigan Indian, rescues the preserved body of an Indian from Lake Superior's cold waters; overindulges in food, drink, and women while just scraping by in Michican's Upper Peninsula; wanders Los Angeles in pursuit of an ersatz Native activist who stole his bearskin; adopts two Native children; and flees the authorities, then returns across the Canadian border aboard an Indian rock band's tour bus. The collection culminates with "He Dog," never before published, which finds B.D. marginally employed and still looking for love (or sometimes just a few beers and a roll in the hay) as he goes on a road trip from Michigan to Montana and back, in search of an answer to the riddle of family and, perhaps, a chance at redemption. From the estate of Beef Torrey, writer, raconteur, and close friend of the author. 528pp. A near fine copy with a slight cover curl. Item #12751
