Alan Heathcock Raves About Julie Barton’s ‘Dog Medicine’

Alan Heathcock is an author we’ve admired since we read his book of short stories, Volt, in 2011. And we’re so grateful for his kind words about Julie Barton’s Dog Medicine: Dog Medicine is so powerfully written, so lyrical and true, I felt I’d experienced every moment, all the loss, the crushing depression, the compassion, the great unstoppable love. So much love. Barton’s journey with her beautiful dog Bunker from mental illness to hope was a profound exercise in how to be healed. For that, I’m deeply grateful for having read this amazing book.”
