On Sale: October 1, 2009

Steven Winn and his wife, Sally, held out for as long as
they could. When the San Francisco couple finally gave in to
their only child Phoebe's pleas for a dog, they adopted a
scraggly terrier mutt from a local animal shelter. The new
family pet, Como, turned out to hate men—especially the
author—and proved to be a cunning escape artist.
Traumatized, single-minded, and exceptionally clever, Como
was bent on breaking Winn's sanity and self-respect, his
bank account and his heart.
Come Back, Como
is the story of one man's hilarious and poignant quest to
win the trust of a dog who wanted nothing to do with him.
With humor and pathos, Winn describes the maddening but
ultimately rewarding effects Como had on his family, the
misadventures and ordeals and terrifying events he and his
dog endured together, and the greatest lesson Como taught
him: that loving a dog can make us more human.
