Special Assistant to the President for External Relations

Dogs of Babel is a sometimes heartbreaking (think sobbing out loud while reading) but beautiful book about love, death, communication and the quest for understanding. In a nutshell, Lexy – the wife of lingystics professor Paul – falls out of the tree in their backyard and dies. The only witness was their beloved Rhodesian Ridgeback, Lorilei. Consumed with grief and lingering questions, Paul attempts to teach Lorilei to speak in order to learn the truth about what happened that day. I’ll be honest – I’ve only read it once because I cannot stomach reading it again….but it is an incredibly powerful book that has clung to me ever since I read it years ago.
