E. B. White on Dogs By Martha White

In E. B. White on Dogs, his granddaughter and manager of his literary estate, Martha White, has compiled the best and funniest of his essays, poems, letters, and sketches depicting over a dozen of White's various canine companions. Featured here are favorite essays such as "Two Letters, Both Open," where White takes on the Internal Revenue Service, and also "Bedfellows," with its "fraudulent reports" from White's ignoble old dachshund, Fred. ("I just saw an eagle go by. It was carrying a baby.") From The New Yorker's "Talk of the Town" are some little-known Notes and Comment pieces covering dog shows, sled dog races, and the trials and tribulations of city canines, chief among them a Scotty called Daisy who was kicked out of Schrafft's, arrested, and later run down by a Yellow Cab, prompting The New Yorker to run her "Obituary."

Tilbury House® is an independent publishing company that began about thirty years ago as Harpswell Press, publishing Maine books. They grew slowly, adding some children's books, and in 1990 merged with another small publisher, the Dog Ear Press, to become Tilbury House, Publishers.

Their children's book division took off with the publication of Talking Walls, and it has continued to publish award-winning children's picture books about cultural diversity, social justice, nature, and the environment. Tilbury's adult books are primarily regional non-fiction, mostly history, some maritime history, and some environmental work. But every once in a while something different comes up that they can't resist, and they publish that too!
