The best-selling and acclaimed author of Glacial Period’ in the Louvre collection returns with a new series starring a dog auto repair mechanic so in demand, he can afford to move his garage to a distant hard-to-reach peak for peace and privacy. The privacy, as it turns out, is to build a mode of transportation that can get him through earth and seas to his beloved far, far away. As unpredictable and totally original as Glacial Period,’ this is a Plymptonesque tale filled with absurd, irresistible bittersweet humor.
