The Last Will & Testament of an Extremely Distinguished Dog: Eugene O'Neil : New
Publisher:Henry Holt and Co 1999
Hardcover, DJ, 42 pages.
In the early 1940s, famed playwright Eugene O'Neill wrote a moving piece of prose about his dog, Silverdene Emblem O'Neill (Blemie). In The Last Will and Testament of an Extremely Distinguished Dog, O'Neill eloquently and compassionately articulates what all dog owners feel as their pet nears the end of its life.
O'Neill's elegy has been lovingly restored to print and is beautifully illustrated by the award-winning quilt maker Adrienne Yorinks. Yorinks complements the text using twenty-five machine-pieced and hand-stitched quilts with color photographic transfers of dogs.
The Last Will says everything that needs to be said to someone you love who is losing or has lost a beloved canine friend.
