The Dog Says How


The Dog Says How


  • Story
  • Specs
  • A popular storyteller and National Public Radio commentator weaves scenes of childhood antics and adult absurdities into tales that provoke laughter—and elicit tears.

    Drawing on his memories—an eventful Christmas at the Klings, taxidermy class, hopping freight trains, getting struck by lightning, joining a circus, eating things before knowing what they are—he invites us into his life of growing up in Minnesota, traveling the world, and relying on the strangeness of others.

    He also shares tales of overcoming personal tragedy, including a congenital arm disability and a near-fatal motorcycle accident. As a result of the accident, he could no longer type and had to learn to use voicere cognition software. The computer translated the barks of his dog into “How,” hence the title, The Dog Says How.
