Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“As an entertaining, somewhat whimsical glimpse into life with dogs in the 21st century, [Travels with Casey] covers a tremendous amount of ground, literally and figuratively. . . . Denizet-Lewis is warm, often hilarious company." (Bronwen Dickey The New York Times Book Review)

Travels with Casey is a charming, touching, human and humane book. The author’s self-deprecating humor, his keen eye for the truth of the people he encounters, his respect for those who live in what too many others might call ‘fly-over country,’ and his affection for dogs make this a unique book.” (Dean Koontz, author of The City: A Novel and A Big Little Life: A Memoir of a Joyful Dog)

"Book of the Week: The abundance of fun facts makes [Denizet-Lewis's] journey well worth sharing." (People)

"USA Today Hot Summer Author." (USA Today)

"Book pick of 'The Culture.'" (Time)

"Denizet-Lewis is a master at effortlessly weaving bits of research into his narrative. . . . An intentionally intellectual, geographically expansive analysis of dog culture." (Ken Foster The Los Angeles Times)

“I couldn’t stop reading Travels with Casey until I had to walk the dog. It’s an adventure story, a love story, and a brilliant commentary on dog literature from J.R. Ackerley to Cesar Millan. Everyone who has a dog will love this book.” (Susan Cheever, author of E.E. Cummings: A Life)

“Dog people will fall in love with Travels with Casey. . . . Even if you are indifferent to dogs, you will be charmed by this book.” (Amanda St. Amand St. Louis Post-Dispatch)

"Benoit Denizet-Lewis' Travels with Casey is a lot like Casey, the 9-year-old dog of the title—fun, sweet and a little neurotic." (Trine Tsouderos Chicago Tribune)

"Warmth, wit, and self-deprecating humor elevate this journey to much more than a travel memoir. Essential reading for dog lovers and armchair travelers." (Library Journal (starred review))

“A thoroughly engaging and often hilarious investigation of the therapeutic nature of our relationships with dogs.” (Booklist)

“Benoit Denizet-Lewis has written about some pretty strange and fascinating people in his career, but no group is more entertaining than Dog People. Benoit captures this group with warmth and wit in Travels With Casey. Sit! Read! Enjoy!” (A.J. Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of The Year of Living Biblically)

“Dog lovers will be entranced by Benoit Denizet-Lewis’ Travels with Casey, but so will everyone, because it’s a book about all of us and a book about America. His observations are funny and poignant and the writing is exquisite.” (David Sheff, author of Beautiful Boy and Clean)

Travels With Casey is a fascinating, clear-eyed, must-read dog book. Benoit takes us on a journey into that very sentimental, very American dog-human relationship, and the result is a dog book like no other.” (Alexander Chee, author of The Queen of the Night)

“Casey takes his place alongside Charley and Tulip and Skip as Denizet-Lewis takes his alongside John Steinbeck and J.R. Ackerley and Willie Morris. Travels with Casey is a book for dog lovers that reaffirms why we love them so. And it is a book for misanthropes that will restore their faith in humanity.” (Kevin Sessums, author of Mississippi Sissy)

"This sprightly, entertaining travelogue should find a delighted readership." (Kirkus Reviews)

"Engaging. . .. Comparisons to John Steinbeck’s Travels with Charley are obvious, but this is an entirely different and equally rewarding piece of work that expands with each page without losing its narrative thread or the reader’s interest." (Publishers Weekly)

“A great read.” (Woman's Day)

“Here's a book you'll want to dog-ear. . . . Recommended reading.” (Country Living)

"A sparklingly entertaining portrait of the dog-besotted United States. . . . Casey is a good dog, and [Denizet-Lewis] is a good writer, and as Steinbeck knew, that’s always a bankable combination." (Steve Donoghue Open Letters Monthly)

"Unlike other dog books that focus simply on training or on an author’s personal experience, Travels with Casey gives us a little bit of everything—it’s an adventure tale, a psychological study, a history lesson, a trend piece, and a hard-hitting news story all in one. It’s funny, fast-paced, life-affirming, moving, and satisfying—in other words, everything a great road trip is supposed to be." (Gena Hymowech Lambda Literary)

"This engaging and illuminating book chronicles New York Times writer Benoit Denizet-Lewis four-month journey through the United States with his beloved Labrador, Casey, in tow. . . . A thoroughly engrossing look at our enduring love affair with man’s best friend." (Modern Dog)

Présentation de l'éditeur

A moody Labrador and his insecure human take a funny, touching cross-country RV trip into the heart of America’s relationship with dogs.

“I don’t think my dog likes me very much,” New York Times Magazine writer Benoit Denizet-Lewis confesses at the beginning of his journey with his nine-year-old Labrador-mix, Casey. Over the next four months, thirty-two states, and 13,000 miles in a rented motor home, Denizet-Lewis and his canine companion attempt to pay tribute to the most powerful interspecies bond there is, in the country with the highest rate of dog ownership in the world.

On the way, Denizet-Lewis—known for his deeply reported dispatches from far corners of American life—meets an irresistible cast of dogs and dog-obsessed humans. Denizet-Lewis and Casey hang out with wolf-dogs in Appalachia, search with a dedicated rescuer of stray dogs in Missouri, spend a full day at a kooky dog park in Manhattan, get pulled over by a K9 cop in Missouri, and visit “Dog Whisperer” Cesar Millan in California. And then there are the pet psychics, dog-wielding hitchhikers, and two nosy women who took their neighbor to court for allegedly failing to pick up her dog’s poop.

Travels With Casey is a delightfully idiosyncratic blend of memoir and travelogue coupled with an exploration of a dog-loving America. What does our relationship to our dogs tell us about ourselves and our values? Denizet-Lewis explores those questions—and his own canine-related curiosities and insecurities—during his unforgettable road trip through our dog-loving nation.

Bold and delightful. Well written, a great read. 23 juillet 2014
Par Leah Erb - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
"Travels with Casey" is funny, informative and thought provoking. I started rolling on the floor laughing on page one (actually, l was guffawing on the dedication page).

Denizet-Lewis' writing style is so very easy to read, even as he tackles tricky topics.

I found it hard to set the book down once I started reading!

This book has exceeded all my expectations! 24 juillet 2014
Par Lisa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Most absolutely wonderful! I am only a third of the way through this delightful book, and find is almost impossible to put down. I scowl at anyone who even speaks to me, but since I want this most enjoyable journey to last awhile for myself, I have forced myself to set the book down - for how long I will manage that, I can't say. Benoit has a wonderful way with words, has done such fabulous research, has put everything together in an entertaining and thought provoking manner, and, is clearly excellent at English grammar and punctuation. Wholeheartedly recommended.

A book for people who love dogs, travel, and good writing 31 juillet 2014
Par Rosemary Lewis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It is well written, funny, and thought provoking. As an animal lover, I appreciated the treatment of serious issues like overbreeding that harms the health of a dog and the serious problem of homeless pets. The topics are an integral part of the narrative and are brought out in a meaningful way in the author's encounters with dogs and people. Not only do I feel as though I know the author, whose first person narrative is rich in detail and humor, but I fell in love with Casey and his new rescued sister Rezzy. The people, places, and dogs that they meet on their cross country journey are interesting and memorable. There is much to think about and love in this book. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys good writing, interesting and important topics, and, of course, dogs.

Great summer read! 31 juillet 2014
Par B. Evenson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I followed the adventures of Benoit and Casey via Facebook as he was researching and gathering information for this book. I eagerly awaited the book's release, and I was not disappointed.By halfway through the first chapter, I was enchanted. I felt included in the trip around the country, their ups and downs were MY ups and downs. I was drawn to the story because of my love for dogs, but I don't think that's a prerequisite to enjoying the tale. I now yearn for a road trip of my own.

Par M. Fimpel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
It's a love story, told effortlessly in such a way that I felt Benoit was sitting with me telling me his planed and surprise adventures during this travels accompanied by photos and short videos. Benoit is not competing with other writers who embarked on similar journeys but very naturally includes many in his narrations. Witty, smart, candid, sensitive. I laughed and cried - specially page 103- and the last few lines.
