"Lost Dog is already one of my books of the year. Spicer writes
like a dream, and her unblinking appraisal of her world and of her
place in it feels like an act of generosity towards the reader. You
will love it." -- India Knight * Sunday Times *
"Kate Spicer made me care about a f***ing dog. I don't know who I am anymore." * John Niven *
"Amazing... so much more than a lost dog." * Grazia *
"Part love letter, part tribute to the power of never giving up hope, Lost Dog is not simply for those who like dogs. It's a mature piece of writing that never falters... It hits you right in the heart." * Literary Review *
"Sharply observed and deeply funny, it's one of the best, most enjoyable books of 2019 so far" * British Vogue *
