In a deeply personal memoir, Habib Rehman captures the joy and anguish of loving and saying good-bye to Gori, his canine companion of many years.
As a pup smuggled into their home by his wife, Rehman refuses to have anything to do with Gori. Not one to give up, she soon worms her way into his affections. For ten years, they are inseparable, going for walks, embarking upon adventures, sharing a pillow, talking on the phone when he travels out of town…
As Gori reaches the end of her life, Rehman tenderly nurses her through her last illness. And when she passes away, he resolves to build a home that overlooks her grave, as a memorial to her.
A Home for Gori will remind dog-lovers of the canine companions they have loved, and lost. To the rest, it will tell an extraordinary story of a dog and a human being, and a bond that endures, quite literally, beyond the grave.
‘If you are dog-lover, you; II adore this book. If you are a dog-hater, you will be converted. I wish I had written it.’
--- Vinod Mehta. Editor-in-Chief, Outlook
