Summary
Teddy is unhappily single in L.A. In between sessions with his therapist and dates with men he meets online, Teddy has debates with his dachsund, Lily, who occupies his heart. Unfortunately, he is also able to communicate with the "octupus" attached to Lily's head, which is soon revealed to be a metaphor for Lily's lethal cranial tumor. As Lily's condition worsens, Teddy faces off with the "octopus", engaging it in a battle of wills that takes on epic proportions. An exceedingly authentic, keenly insightful, funny and ardent tribute to the purity of love between a pet and its human. --

Summary
Lily is a short, happy 12-year-old who loves mint chocolate-chip ice cream. Ted is a fortyish writer who's been in therapy since he split with his last boyfriend. He also loves Lily -- his dachshund -- with all his heart, and is unable to bear the brain tumor that is stealing Lily's sight and will eventually take her life. By turns heartbreaking and hilarious (Lily's contributions to the conversation are priceless), this debut is a by-turns funny, loving, and quirky account of the love between humans and their pets. Have tissues handy. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
