Dear Librarians,

Losing one's dog is one of the more heart-wrenching events we experience as humans. ROAM is the story of one lost dog's journey across the USA, but more than that it's an Everyman fable about love lost and found and the joy and pain of families. It's a book for dog-lovers, but also for those drawn to adventure stories with a more spiritual meaning, like The Alchemist.

"Nelson's adventures on the fringe are fascinating.... A touching page-turner" —Publishers Weekly

"...debut novelist Lazar crafts a good one. He captures the interior and exterior lives of humans and dogs (and even wolves) with a sure hand." —Library Journal

"...will likely be added to bookshelves that include titles like Dewey the Library Cat, The Art of Racing in the Rain and The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. Lazar has crafted an adventure guaranteed to capture the interest of the reader." —Bookpage

Thanks for reading my note, and hope you enjoy my novel as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Happy Holidays!
