Id like to nominate Flush by Virginia Woolf. It is a quasi-biography of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, written from the perspective of her cocker-spaniel! Looking at the world with bewildered eyes, he never quite understands what is happening to him. I am not a fan of dogs, usually, but this story broke my heart. Being a much easier read than some of her other writings, it serves a great introduction to Virginia Woolf. I have only read this in a translation so far, so Id like to give the original a try.

Flush: A biography can be found in our Patricia Clark Memorial Library: IMP, LRF, PRC, and EPUB (in the Complete Works)
