The life and opinions of Maf the dog, and of his friend Marilyn Monroe by Andrew O'Hagan ( Book )
7 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,019 libraries worldwide
[This story] is about Marilyn Monroe- voiced by her dog, Mafia Honey, or "Maf," for short. Maf is, naturally, versed in the classics, and as he and his owner spend time with such notables as Natalie Wood, Frank Sinatra, and JFK, he offers erudite commentary, sometimes in dialogue with other dogs, on such subjects as interior decorating, celebrity, authenticity, religion, and death. The strangeness of the scenario becomes more sensible as the book goes on. Maf's riffs on the way people project their thoughts and feelings onto dogs suggest the way they view celebrities, and O'Hagan ornaments his wry humor with sparkling gems of prose. -Booklist review

8 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 165 libraries worldwide
In A night out with Robert Burns novelist and Scottish essayist Andrew O'Hagan joins company with the poet who has mattered most to him throughout his own writing career. Organizing the poems into four overlapping categories, O'Hagan offers fragments and distilled commentary of his own, forming an ongoing dialogue between O'Hagan and the bard himself. The effect is explosive, giving us Robert Burns at his very best--a political Burns, a satirical Burns, a poet who can name hypocrisy and intolerance while always aiming directly at the human heart.
