“Harry Thomason is the last of a dying breed: the great American raconteur”
—Kyle Minor, author of Praying Drunk
“Magic, longing, fear, insecurity, bravado, dreams, all the things that make up our upbringing. Harry Thomason has written a collection of stories that cover it all. It’ll take you back to your own special set of memories and at the same time lose yourself in his.”
—Billy Bob Thornton
“Harry Thomason’s memoir takes us from the haunting stillness of a mid-century Arkansas night (with a serial killer on the loose) to the set of the Tonight Show (with a future President on the sax). It’s a sometimes-gentle sometimes-wild ride through the century, with the good-hearted Coach Thomason as a guide.
—Jeffrey Toobin CNN commentator & author
“Brother Dog includes some of the sweetest memories I have ever read. Thomason reminded me of my childhood in Connecticut—never wearing shoes all summer—where an abandoned bed in a dusty attic became my nightly domain. These stories are so powerful and bring back such happy times.” —Hal Holbrook
“I read Brother Dog in one sitting; I couldn’t put it down. It is a perfect antidote to the times we live in. Wisdom—as it can only be expressed in stories—shines through in every chapter. Often wickedly funny, Thomason’s stories speak lovingly of parents who taught him to see the best in even the most lost souls. A pleasure of the highest order!”
—Markie Post, film & TV actress
