First and foremost, STANLEY AND SOPHIE is a book about animals, but it is also about grief and grieving - for Jennings's husband, for the city after 9/11, for the world. And it is a book about the way two rivalrous, demanding, idiosyncratic, exhilarating dogs gave Jennings daily purpose and showed her the way to her own heart.

‘Because Stanley came into my life in 2001 and Sophie in 2004, this is a tale, tangentially, about Manhattan in those first confounding years of the new millennium. Years when our lives were a rhubarb of noisy emotion: a devil’s chorus of fear, blatting rage, birring anxiety, tweedling incredulity, roupy sorrow.’ Stanley and Sophie is a book that woofs. Ostensibly an animal book, it’s about two beloved border terriers in New York City and two monkeys in Bali. It is also a book about terrorism, about grieving, about finding one’s way through sadness, and about remaking a life.
