What is included with this book?


Kevin Kling, best known for his popular commentaries on National Public Radio's All Things Considered and his storytelling stage shows like Tales from the Charred Underbelly of the Yule Log, delivers hilarious, often tender stories to readers everywhere with his first book, The Dog Says How. Kling's autobiographical tales are as enchanting as they are true to life: hopping freight trains, getting hit by lightning, performing his banned play in Czechoslovakia, growing up in Minnesota, and eating things before knowing what they are. In 'Circus Tale', Kling recollects how his love of boats, animals, and adventure inspired him to join a travelling circus troupe -- but it was the all-you-can-eat buffets that cinched the deal. In 'Hockey Hair', Kling spots old pals from his hometown who sport mullet-like haircuts, spurring him to unlock doors to his past. In the comical yet poignant title story, Kling straddles the world of the ordinary and one rivalling Dante's inferno as he learns how to use voice-recognition software after a motorcycle accident.
