National Book Award finalist and bestselling author Meg Rosoff's charming, hilarious new novel about a young New Yorker's search for happiness and the two dogs who help him find it-the perfect summer read Jonathan Trefoil's boss is unhinged, his relationship baffling, and his apartment just the wrong side of legal. His girlfriend wants to marry someone just like him-only richer and with a different sense of humor. He doesn't remember life being this confusing, back before everyone expected him to act like a grown-up. When his brother asks him to look after his dogs, Jonathan's world view begins to shift. Could a border collie and a cocker spaniel hold the key to life, the universe, and everything? Their sly maneuvering on daily walks and visits to the alluring vet suggest that human emotional intelligence may not be top dog after all. A funny, wise romantic comedy set in Manhattan, Jonathan Unleashed is a story of tangled relationships, friendships, and dogs. Rosoff's novel is for anyone wondering what to be when they grow up, and how on earth to get there.

Professional reviews

"For those who pop their audiobook player in the beach bag, make sure you have JONATHAN UNLEASHED loaded to go. This fun audiobook is a perfect listen for the carefree days of summer. Dog lovers will especially enjoy Jonathan Trefoil's experience keeping his brother's dogs, Sissy and Dante, while living in New York City. Narrator Alexander Cendese augments the humor with his depiction of the perpetually conflicted 20-something Jonathan as he tries to find contentment in work, love, and life in general. His strong characterizations of Meg Rosoff's cast--canines and Homo sapiens alike--infuse them with authenticity, even when Rosoff is highlighting the absurdities in American society.
