Lisbet Hiide
My father’s dog

In an attempt to get attention, and maybe even love, from her father, Bella tries to become a human dog. Along with her sister, Little K, their parents and a range of other relatives (and Farah Dibah the dog), she grows up in an elegant though run-down wooden villa – "a house full of secrets – shut out from the world, or in a world of its own".

My Father’s Dog portrays a daughter’s boundless love for her father. It is a modern fable marked by exaggerations, magnifications, deliberate disproportions and a peculiar mix of sincerity and cynicism. A grotesque tale and a gripping story about survival.
