Dog On Fire Cover

"Svoboda juggles comedy, mystery, tragedy, horror—and masters them all." -- Superstition Review

Ms. Svoboda distinguishes herself with the peculiarity of her prose, which takes a darting, indirect approach that almost attains the abstraction of a tone poem. -- Wall Street Journal

Everyone likes ghost stories – except Dog on Fire isn't exactly that. Imagine a sad-funny elegy, Cather channeling Saunders, with infusions of sly wit.

"A contemporary "Dustbowl Gothic" novel."
– Rone Shavers, author of Silverfish

"Haunting and darkly witty reckoning."
- Dawn Raffel, author of Boundless as the Sky
