‘Intelligently written, finely observed and surprisingly moving, this is a book you’ll find hard to put down’ Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project


Companions come in all shapes and sizes.

Companionship lasts forever.


Lily and the Octopus is a novel about finding that special someone to share your life with.

For Ted Flask, that someone is Lily, and she happens to be a dog.

This novel reminds us how to love fiercely, how difficult it can be to let go and how the fight for those we love is the greatest fight of all.


Reminiscent of The Life of Pi and The Art of Racing in the Rain, with spins into magic realism and beautifully evoked universal truths of love, loyalty and loss, a hilariously sardonic and not altogether reliable narrator, and one unforgettable hound who simple wisdom will break your heart and put it back together again, Lily and the Octopus captures the search for meaning in death and introduces a dazzling new voice in fiction.
