Jon Katz: "Izzy and Lenore"
Author Jon Katz is best known for his stories about the dogs in his life and his decision to move to a farm in upstate New York. In a new book, he shares why he let another troubled dog into his life and how they both helped those in hospice care. And he once again marvels at the powerful and complex relationship between dogs and humans.
author of six novels and eleven works of nonfiction, he writes columns about dogs and rural life for "Slate" and cohosts an award-winning show, "Dog Talk," on Northeast Public Radio.
