For art and a wilful determination to save Dacres from himselfA love story laced with satire a historical novel bearing on contemporary truths a picaresue tale of cowardice drinking and artistic paralysis Goya's Dog is above all else an original and mesmerizing debut novel from a writer The Globe and Mail has called a truly new voice delivered with rare panach Loved the languageliked the plotannoyed by Dacres the main character but I guess you'll have that in an anti hero Nevertheless I loved the insight brought out in Tarnopolsky's prose and the story did move along at a satisfying pace 3 stars

Opportunity to leave England Once in North America Dacres is forced by a series of mishaps  to abandon the delegation and seek survival by any means In the puritan climate of 1939 Toronto however most citizens have their thoughts on the war and don't care a whit for his painted triangles Most that is with the notable exception of a beautiful heiress with an eye Another book I liked if only for the general grubbiness of the main character and the meandering narrative which really does reflect some of the effects of loss and destabilization Also there are some great reflections on artiness and charlatanism also good characters and a witty fractured style of dialogue that parallels actual aimless conversation
