Virginia Woolf's Great Dog Story -- FLUSH
Virginia Woolf is one of the truly great modern writers, best remembered for classic novels like The Waves, Mrs. Dalloway, and To the Lighthouse. But I always loved her great dog story Flush, which is told from the point of view of Elizabeth Barret Browning's spaniel. I am sure you will find it extremely amusing, not just for her use of the flawlessly literary stream of consciousness style but also for its insight into Robert Browning's household.
