The Philosopher and the Wolf: Lessons from the Wild on Love, Death and Happiness

by Mark Rowlands - £9.99  Granta Books (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781783784578 | ISBN 10: 1783784571

This fascinating book charts the relationship between Mark Rowlands, a rootless philosopher, and Brenin, his extraordinarily well-travelled wolf. More than just an exotic pet, Brenin exerted an immense influence on Rowlands as both a person, and, strangely enough, as a philosopher, leading him to re-evaluate his attitude to love, happiness, nature and death.
 
By turns funny (what do you do when your wolf eats your air-conditioning unit?) and poignant, this life-affirming book will make you reappraise what it means to be human.
