What happens when a smart New York Times editor decides to fill her empty nest with a puppy? This is the marvellously entertaining (and instructive) chronicle of an adorable golden retriever puppy named Scout and his first year. Part memoir, part manual, part investigative report, The Puppy Diaries recounts Jill Abramson's experiences of the first year of puppy parenting - think Nora Ephron meets Marley & Me.
Jill Abramson, a bestselling and award-winning author, has worked on the Wall Street Journal and Time and, since 2011, the executive editor of the New York Times. A dog-lover all her life, she has long been fascinated by the complex relationship between dogs and their owners. She, her husband, and Scout live in New York City and Connecticut.
