My Dog: The Paradox
Matthew “The Oatmeal” Inman’s My Dog: The Paradox is a funny and endearing ode to man’s strange, reckless, and beloved best friend. This comic-turned-book contemplates the inner thoughts and fears of these “bearlike creatures”, all while reminding us why we love our dogs. The New York Times bestselling author has written the perfect Father’s Day gift for dog lovers with a sense of humor. In the book, Inman ponders some age-old questions: Why do dogs love cars but fear hair dryers? How can they eat blocks of wood but reject broccoli? And why do they clean their private parts so obsessively? In classic Oatmeal style–see How I See My Dog/Friendbeast–the author poses these questions with comedy, logic, and love. From the man who spent his birthday feeding peanut butter to bears, Inman crafts a quirky and beautiful story about what it means to be a dog.
