Dog Food by Peter Caffrey
David Miller hates coming home from holidays. The return journey is always stressful, but without the reward of a vacation at the end. When his break in the Algarve ends, the journey home is plagued by his miserable wife and squealing children, and the irritations of budget airlines push him to the edge. But once the plane lands, things get darker when he meets the bald man.
Dog Food is an absurdist tale of one man’s descent into the abyss…
Dog Food is the kind of story that will stay with you, long after you've finished reading it!
Dog Food is one of the most disconcerting stories that I have read. Ever. From page one to page last, I had no idea what was going on. No... That's not quite right. I had a plethora of ideas, and each one seemed as feasible or ridiculous as any other. I have read a few books by Peter Caffrey, but Dog Food is my favorite. I literally couldn't put it down. I struggle with concentration, so even a short novella will typically take me a couple days, but I read Dog Food in one sitting!
Caffrey spins a tale of Murphy's Law, anything that will go wrong, certainly will as this tale of the bizarre, twisted and slightly askew nature of story telling. A family man spirals down an abyss and down a rabbit hole after vacationing, is he mad? Or was the family vacation just too much for his fragile mind? Find out as you sit at the airport and read this twilight zone-esque tale of weirdness.
HE DID WHAT TO MY COFFEE?
What an absolute orgy of mind-fucks! A confusing journey through fuck-knows-where, for a long, or short amount of time. I laughed out loud more than once. A must read!
GENIUS OR PURE MADNESS
