The Dogs of Littlefield

by Suzanne Berne

Sociologist Dr Clarice Watkins expects a pleasant change from Chicago as she prepares to study the population of Littlefield, of one of Massachusetts's 'Ideal Places to Live'; and in particular her charming neighbour Margaret. This book delivers a subtly amusing read but with scary undertones. It will play on your mind - be warned.


None of it was what she had expected .... None of it was what, without realizing, she had hoped for. Why weren't these people happier? She had counted on them to be happier. To be insular, complacent, self-absorbed. And they were - yet also restless, anguished. And strangely infatuated with the idea of menace.
