Margaret Hawkins

A Year of Cats and Dogs

 In this dark, yet hopeful, unique and wholly original debut novel, Chicago writer Hawkins combines humor with desperation, the “real world” with the I-Ching, the conventions of fiction with food writing, lists, good and bad poetry, and the protagonist’s surprising discovery that she can communicate with animals, to tell a story of lost love, new love, and midlife re-invention unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. Hawkins writes for ARTnews, and her work has appeared on WBEZ and in the Chicago Sun-Times. She teaches writing at the Art Institute of Chicago.
