Summary
[This story] is about Marilyn Monroe- voiced by her dog, Mafia Honey, or "Maf," for short. Maf is, naturally, versed in the classics, and as he and his owner spend time with such notables as Natalie Wood, Frank Sinatra, and JFK, he offers erudite commentary, sometimes in dialogue with other dogs, on such subjects as interior decorating, celebrity, authenticity, religion, and death. The strangeness of the scenario becomes more sensible as the book goes on. Maf's riffs on the way people project their thoughts and feelings onto dogs suggest the way they view celebrities, and O'Hagan ornaments his wry humor with sparkling gems of prose.-Booklist review
