About the Author

Terese Svoboda is the award-winning author of twenty-one books of poetry, prose, memoir, biography, and translation, including the novel Bohemian Girl (Nebraska, 2011), the memoir Black Glasses Like Clark Kent, and two forthcoming books of fiction, Roxy and Coco and The Long Swim.


"With its fierce wit and insight, Dog on Fire is thrillingly alive to this bewildering moment. This novel about family, grief, and all the ways we remain mysteries to one another is both memorable and brilliant. I'm grateful for Terese Svoboda's searing vision and for her singular, inventive prose, which always makes me see the world in an entirely new way."--René Steinke, author of Friendswood
"Dog on Fire is a blisteringly perceptive novel about grief, secrets, and the intractability of love. The mysteries surrounding one man's death, narrated alternately by his sister and his lover, yield no easy answers in this haunting and darkly witty reckoning."--Dawn Raffel, author of Boundless as the Sky
"Tense, poignant, urgent, and at times scathing, with Dog on Fire Svoboda has performed the astonishing dual feat of writing what could be called a contemporary Dust Bowl Gothic novel and creating a pitch-perfect work depicting the feelings of rage, grief, and isolation that come with losing a loved one. Without a doubt, Dog on Fire is Svoboda at her finest."--Rone Shavers, author of Silverfish
