Timoleon Vieta Come Home: A Sentimental Journey
By (author) Dan Rhodes
Meet the mongrel. Timoleon Vieta. A deeply loyal, undemanding and loving companion …with the most beautiful eyes. He’s living an idyllic existence in the Italian countryside with Cockroft, a composer in exile. Until, that is, the mysterious and malevolent Bosnian comes to stay. How will the stranger affect the bond between dog and master? Timoleon Vieta Come Home is a free-wheeling take on the Lassie legend, deeply moving and hysterically funny.
Reviews of Timoleon Vieta Come Home: A Sentimental Journey
