A Gift from the Heart, A Treasure for All Time
John Grogan touched our hearts with his #1 New York Times bestseller Marley & Me, the unforgettable story of a family in the making and the wondrously neurotic dog who taught them what really matters in life. Lavishly illustrated with never-before-published photographs, this special edition includes a personal message from John Grogan as well as his original Philadelphia Inquirer column that inspired the book. The heartwarming story that has made millions laugh and cry is now a wonderful keepsake for those who love Marley and for those who have yet to meet him.
John Grogan is the author of the #1 adult bestseller Marley & Me: Life and Love with the Worlds Worst Dog, which inspired the bestselling middle-grade memoir Marley: A Dog Like No Other and the #1 bestselling picture book Bad Dog, Marley! He is also the author of the bestselling A Very Marley Christmas, Marley Goes to School, and Marley and the Kittens. John lives with his wife and three children and their new dogs, Gracie and Woodson, in the Pennsylvania countryside.
“A very funny valentine...Marley & Me tenderly follows its subject from sunrise to sunset...with hilarity and affection.”
-Janet Maslin, New York Times
“[Marley & Me] rises above some others of its topic thanks to Grogan’s healthy dose of self-deprecating humor.”
“[Marley & Me] took my breath away. I laughed. I cried. . . . What a gift…immortalizing a dog who will always hold a very special place in the hearts of each family member.”
“Marley, meanwhile, is teaching America something about values—something that perhaps only a really bad dog with a really true heart can teach.”
-Daily Mail (London)
“If you know someone who claims there’s not a book in the world that can make him cry, give him this one. It won’t even matter if he’s not a dog lover. He’ll cry anyway. Trust me.”
-Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
“A humorous and loving tribute…Throughout, the family is steadfastly devoted to this badly behaved yet totally lovable and loyal pup. …Readers…whose dogs would qualify for the “Bad Dog Club” will delight in this tribute.”
