Lives of the Monster Dogs by Kirsten Bakis

Staff Pick

Why were we made? If those that made us are monsters, would that make us monsters too? This incredible first novel asks big questions, and it does so through talking cybernetic dogs, mad scientists, shifting points of view, and a range of forms including letters, articles, historical records, and even opera. That Bakis is able to tell a brilliant story with such a bonkers premise is due to her unflinchingly confident prose, deeply interesting characters, and fully realized world.
