Men and Dogs

A Novel
By Katie Crouch (Trade Paperback, 2010)
When Hannah Legare was 11, her father went on a fishing trip in the Charleston harbor and never came back. And while most of the town and her family accepted Buzz's disappearance, Hannah remained steadfastly convinced of his imminent return.

Twenty years later Hannah's new life in San Francisco is unraveling. Her marriage is on the rocks, her business is bankrupt. After a disastrous attempt to win back her husband, she ends up back at her mother's home to "rest up", where she is once again sucked into the mystery of her missing father. Suspecting that those closest are keeping secrets--including Palmer, her emotionally closed, well-mannered brother and Warren, the beautiful boyfriend she left behind--Hannah sets out on an uproarious, dangerous quest that will test the whole family's concepts of loyalty and faith.

  • Men and Dogs by Katie Crouch

  • PRAISE FOR GIRLS IN TRUCKS:


    "[A] charming debut novel."

  • "There are more gasps, sobs, laughs and surprises in these pages than in most people's entire bookshelves. Love never felt so sharp or real as in Katie Crouch's debut."

  • "[A] very amusing debut."

  • "Katie Crouch speaks in a funny, spiky, highly original voice that carries a reader happily along through this charming novel."

  • "Sarah's voice is a funny, slim stiletto to the heart of friendship, desire and love. Her spare prose and sharp dialogue flay open a universal need to belong, whether to a place, a person or your own true self."

  • "Given all the predictable tales about young women, Sarah's genuine imperfection seems refreshing. A-."

  • "[An] amusing debut....Crouch's portrayal of a young woman's self-sabotage and the pitfalls fac­ing young women in a cold world is wise, wry and heartbreaking."
