Summary
  • "A highly original, tragicomic novel as seen through Sirius, an extraordinary dog who helps his Jewish family escape from Germany to California, becomes a Hollywood star, and, ultimately, contributes to Hitler's downfall"--
  • Levi, a fox terrier, lives with the Liliencrons family in Berlin. The year is 1938, and Berlin is no longer safe for his Jewish owners. They rename him Sirius, after the constellation, to protect him. Sirius alerts the family when Nazi troops storm the city, and they manage to flee to California. Carl Liliencron becomes a chauffeur and Sirius, renamed Hercules, becomes a canine movie star. Through a series of exceptional events he winds up at the right hand of Hitler himself. Can Sirius help the German resistance, derail the Führer, and reunite with his family?
