Benoit Denizet-Lewis

PENELOPE BASS

Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing
3415 SW Cedar Hills Blvd., Beaverton
 
Despite the fact that he didn't think his own dog liked him very much, New York Times Magazine writer Benoit Denizet-Lewis embarked on a four-month, 13,000-mile journey across the country in a rented RV with his moody labrador Casey. In his attempt to understand our country's obsession with dogs, Denizet-Lewis traveled from Missouri where he searched for strays with a rescuer, to dog parks in Manhattan, to California for a meeting with "Dog Whisperer" Cesar Millan. The resulting book, Travels with Casey, is part memoir and part travelogue of a canine-obsessed country. Sort of like if Wes Anderson directed Best in Show.
