About

A New York Times Notable Book
Nominated for the Man Booker Prize


In this extraordinary, both comic and philosophically profound novel, the acclaimed author of Netherland uncovers the hidden contours of a glittering Middle Eastern city--and the quiet dilemmas of modernity. When our unnamed hero, a self-sabotaging and oddly existential lawyer, finds his life in New York falling apart, he seizes an opportunity to flee to Dubai, taking a mysterious job for a fabulously wealthy Lebanese family. As he struggles with his position as the "family officer" of the capricious Batros brothers, he also struggles with the "doghouse," a condition of culpability in which he feels trapped, even as he composes endless electronic correspondence--both sent and unsent--in an attempt to find a way out.

An unforgettable fable for our globalized times, The Dog is told with Joseph O'Neill's hallmark eloquence, empathy, and stylistic mastery.
