Dean Spanley: A Novel
Dean Spanley is the very archetype of a bland churchman: affable, conventional, prudent without being a prig. Only his keen interest in the transmigration of souls and almost excessive enthusiasm for dogs betray any shadow of eccentricity. And then, richly primed with a few glasses of Imperial Tokay, he slips over the threshold between past and present and becomes a dog. Or are his canine memories no more than fancy? Surely, no mere dean could speak so vividly, with such total conviction, of the joys of hunting, of rolling in fresh dung, or baying at the moon?
My Talks With Dean Spanley was first published in 1936, and this special edition includes Lord Dunsany's witty and inventive original novel, as well as Alan Sharp's screenplay of the acclaimed film adaptation, which faithfully adapts and also expands upon the events in the book. Complete with colour photos and interviews with the principal film-makers, this whimsical, wintry tale about dogs, reincarnation and the effects of alcohol makes perfect Christmas reading for lovers of classic humorous storytelling.
