'If you are accompanied by a dog you can talk to anyone, and anyone can talk to you - about anything'. And they do. Edward Stourton's walks with, Kudu, his dog, become an opportunity for wonderfully unlikely encounters, and reflecting on the world from the dog-walker's perspective proves remarkably illuminating. Ed and Kudu's small trips to the park offer up big insights into romantic attachment, honour and heroism, guilt and depression, our sense of duty, beauty and the hard facts of life's pecking order. "Diary of a Dog-Walker" is witty, wise and will be utterly irresistible to any man or woman with a dog.
