Downward Dog Premiers on ABC-TV; Behind the Moon in the WSJ

Dog is man’s best friend, as the saying goes, but do our pets reciprocate the feeling? ABC-TV’s Downward Dog takes a peek into the mind of Martin, a loveable dog who has plenty to say about life with his owner, Nan. The show, which is the very first broadcast comedy ever to be launched at the Sundance Film Festival, premiered last night, May 17, to an enthusiastic response. The Wall Street Journal spotlighted the show in an article published on May 11.On May 16, Newsday called the show a “Grade A Winner,” and Variety named Downward Dog “one of the best shows to watch this week.” Martin and the cast of Downward Dog have also won over the A.V. Club, who praised the show when it was first publicized at the Television Critics Association on January 10. If Martin’s soulful puppy dog eyes and pithy remarks have already stolen your heart, be sure to get Downward Dog: Very Serious Haiku from a Very Serious Dog, a collection of poetry written “by” Martin (with a little help from the show’s co-creators Samm and Phinheas Hodges), when it publishes on June 13! Fun tidbit: Samm is also the voice of Martin on the show.

In acclaimed literary author and National Book Award finalist Madison Smartt Bell’s new novel, Behind the Moon, dreams and reality combine when a camping trip in the desert takes a disastrous turn. Bell’s hypnotic writing has drawn the attention of the Wall Street Journals Sam Sacks, who reviewed Behind the Moon on May 13. In an article touting the “Best New Fiction,” Sacks praised that “Madison Smartt Bell is one of those novelists who slip the net of classification. . . . lately he’s ventured into the American West. . . for his eerie and peculiar novel Behind the Moon.” An interview with Bell as well as a review of the book will be published in the July issue of O Magazine, on stands in June. If you can’t wait to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into Bell’s writing process, check out this interview on WYPR-FM of Baltimore’s Midday Show, which aired on May 10. An excerpt from Behind the Moon will be published on the Literary Hub on June 2, and be sure to keep your eyes out for a Largehearted Boy playlist curated by Bell himself.
