The Lonely Dog
Coming Soon the expanded Novel -
Excerpt from The Novel:
“Secrets and legends. The land of Alveridgea abounds with them. Old Rolph Flannegan was a Hound with many secrets he had buried deep. As he stumbled up the hill on this moonless night he felt a knocking in his chest, something more that his aging heart, pumping like a leaky piston, unused to such physical exertion.
They were old secrets, banging on the door of his soul, demanding resurrection. He reached the summit of the hill, gulping air like a drowning pup, and fell to his knees, loosening the collar of his sweat drenched shirt.”
"EXQUISITE BOOK AND STORY"
'Lonely Dog is a beautiful book in every sense. Ivan Clarke’s illustrations bring the story, eloquently co-written by his longtime friend, Stu Duval, to life; and render the book a genuine treasure, a work of art as much as literature...'
Dr McKinley - Otago Daily Times. (NZ)
"VIVID AND BELIEVABLE"
'In the manner of J.K. Rowling, or Charles Dickens a century earlier, or the Grimm Brothers a century before that, New Zealand writers and artists, Ivan Clarke and Stu Duval, have invented a hero...'
Carla Perry – The Delta (CANADA)
'This is an outstanding novel and will become as legendary as Lonely Dog himself. Brilliantly illustrated by creator Ivan Clarke and told by master story teller Stu Duval whose command of language will have you laughing out loud. His imagery and metaphor are brilliant...'
