The Dogs of Littlefield Summary


The Dogs of Littlefield by Suzanne Berne

Littlefield, Massachusetts, named one of the Ten Best Places to Live in America, full of psychologists and college professors, is proud of its fine schools, its girls' soccer teams, its leafy streets and quaint village centre.

Yet no sooner has sociologist Dr Clarice Watkins arrived in Littlefield to study the elements of 'good quality of life' than someone begins poisoning the town's dogs. Are the poisonings in protest to an off-leash proposal for Baldwin Park - the subject of much town debate - or the sign of a far deeper disorder?

The Dogs of Littlefield is a wry exploration of the discontent concealed behind the manicured lawns and picket fences of darkest suburbia.

The Dogs of Littlefield Reviews


A beautifully balanced and accomplished portrayal of the glue that binds families together, despite themselves, as well as the forces that tear them asunder. Superb * Mail on Sunday on The Ghost at the Table *
It is impossible not to be completely swept along . . . Berne's vision is gently humorous, ironic, quirky . . . and she writes with such piercing sensitivity . . . a compelling debut novel * The Times on A Crime in the Neighbourhood *
This ambitious account of a sudden coming of age reminded me strongly of To Kill A Mockingbird - and is very bit as moving and satisfying * Daily Telegraph on A Crime in the Neighbourhood *
