Reviews

" Everyone who has ever looked down an empty road, waiting for a beloved animal to come walking home, will love this book."
-- Rick Bragg, Pulitzer Prize- winning author of Ava' s Man and All Over But the Shoutin'
"Everyone who has ever looked down an empty road, waiting for a beloved animal to come walking home, will love this book."
--Rick Bragg, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Ava's Man and All Over But the Shoutin'
"Sonny Brewer is a natural-born storyteller, and Cormac is one hell of a great story about dog's best friend; about loss and redemption and need; and about the ineffable connection we have with what may be the biggest hearted animal on the planet. If you're a dog lover, then Cormac is a must-read. If you're not a dog-lover and don't understand the utter sense of hopelessness that Brewer endured, and the powerfully cathartic ending, then go get yourself spayed or neutered, please."
--George Singleton, author of Work Shirts for Madmen
"Brewer takes this simple little tale of a dog lost and found and turns it into a little parable of family and friendship, small-town life, dogs as writers' best friends, and yes, life's proper priorities.""
"--"Times-Picayune"
.,."an engaging tale of Brewer's golden retriever, which disappeared from Fairhope and ultimately turned up at a rescue home in Danbury, Conn...But what Brewer's really writing about are the people he meets along the way, and the story becomes a poignant look at the goodness and sometimes appalling callousness of human nature."
--"Nashville Scene"
.,."a page-turning tale of a man and his canine best friend...Cormac will stir pet owners' recollections of their own relationships with their pets, present and past.""
"--"Anniston Star"
"Sonny Brewer's Cormac is a happy, good-natured Golden Retriever of a book. Even if you're not a 'dog person' (as I'm not), you'll love this writing for its clearprose, precise detail, and careful insight into both the human and canine worlds. Brewer's main strength, though, is finding the common ground between these worlds, those instances when human and dog converge, where dogs smile and men bark. This book makes me want a Golden Retriever myself."
--Tom Franklin, author of Smonk and Hell at the Breech
