Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenaged Blockhead

‘This conversation is a major downer, amigo. Dead dogs, missing sisters, burning blankets. Let’s talk about something happy.’

‘Like what?’


Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead views the wasteland of adolescence through the lens of an iconic cast of characters, whose comic-strip childhoods receive a dose of reality in the form of age. Faced with the loss of his pet beagle, CB is a ‘handsome, however currently sullen’ teenager searching for a sense of self in the midst of his binge drinking, self-destructive, rebellious peers. Equal parts witty, outrageous and devastating, Dog Sees God takes a familiar gang of friends into modern adolescence to create a story as surprising as it is true to life.
