Why we love dogs: Noon talks to Dog Days author Erick Waller

How are dogs important to us and how do they relate to midlife transformations

At the March 2022 Noon Book Club, Noon founder Eleanor Mills talked to Ericka Waller, the author of Dog Days, and Kate Spicer, author of Lost Dog. Along with the Noon community, we discussed why we love dogs, the benefits of owning them and how the book explores dog ownership alongside the transformations that we undergo in life.

Dog Days is a funny, heart-warming, deeply emotional read about life-changing moments and hope. It’s been called, “Perfect for fans of A Man Called Ove and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely FineDefinitely one of my favourite novels of 2021,” by AJ Pearce, author of Dear Mrs Bird and Yours Cheerfully.

See the entire conversation with Ericka Waller, Kate Spicer and Eleanor Mills, and comments and questions from our Noon community.

What they’re saying about Dog Days:

“The kind of charm readers will recall from Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine… a welcome balm for anxious lockdown minds… the book is gentle but poignant, moving but uplifting, suffused with different kinds of love and loss.” ― VANITY FAIR

“[A] Touching and thoughtful debut novel” ― RED

“Deftly drawn… a warm debut about loss, healing and making new connections” ― MAIL ON SUNDAY
