Dogs, Houses, Gardens, Food and Other Addictions
Bestselling author and columnist Sondra Gotlieb returns to write about her many addictions--dogs, houses, gardens, food--even marriage--in this hilarious memoir. She describes her "I Love Lucy-esque" experiences as a gardener dog trainer, cook, and "wife of" an Oxford don and ambassador, who bumbles her way through England, Geneva, Ottawa, Washington and her present resting place, Toronto.

An array of characters make appearances in her tale, from the Winnipeg uncle with the bogus title to acidic Oxford dons, Pierre Trudeau, Katherine Graham, and the glamorous and jealous hostesses of Georgetown, now mostly dead. Dogs, Houses, Gardens, Food & Other Addictions is a wonderful tonic to the spirit and an enormously entertaining memoir. About the Author Sondra Gotlieb won the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour for True Confessions. Her other books include Cross-Canada Cooking; First Lady, First Lady; Wife Of...; and Washington Rollercoaster. She is also a columnist for the National Post and lives in Toronto with her husband Allan and new dog Paxil. Her Toronto garden is a work in progress.
