About the book:
Based on a beloved ten-part series in the San Francisco Chronicle, the tender and hilarious story of one man’s uncommonly rich experience with a dog who wanted nothing whatsoever to do with him
Steven Winn wanted a dog for his family–for companionship, for laughter, for holidays together, and stories to tell. But when his daughter fell in love with a scraggly, man-hating terrier mix named Como from a local animal shelter, Winn got far more than he’d bargained for. Traumatized, single-minded, and clever, Como was bent on breaking Winn’s sanity, his bankbook, and his heart.
COME BACK, COMO is the story of a unique journey: one man’s valiant quest to win the love of a truly one-of-a-kind dog, a creature usually thought of as man’s best friend. With humor and pathos, Winn describes the exasperating but ultimately rewarding effects Como had on his family, the ordeals he and his dog endured together, and the greatest lesson Como taught him: that loving a dog can somehow make us more human.
