Local author celebrates first book with 'The Dogs of Sherburne'

NORWICH – Local author Tom Mody hopes to present readers with a sense of what it was like to live in the late 1970s through a dog’s perspective with the publication of his first book, “The Dogs of Sherburne.”



This fictional novel depicts some serious adult issues through the eyes of dogs, said Mody, in a time prior to the information age and modern leash laws. The story centers the experiences of a dog named Dallas – Mody’s real life boyhood dog – who has died and reflects on his life when he enters Doggie Heaven, giving him insight and revelations about human and animal conflicts. Though Mody writes himself as a background character in the book, he said that he also incorporated an autobiographical feel.
