When a wildly eccentric family living in Greenwich Village circa 70s and 80s adopt a paranoid dog, all hell breaks loose in the neighborhood.

*
A cute, mischievous winning animal? Yes, but this wire-haired terrier could, at times, become completely unhinged, affecting the lives of those around him.

Mom-participating in various art forms, but always distracted by the madness around her. The Big G.-father,complex, wounded opera singer, fierce personality. The kids-having many different interests between them, but absolutely fascinated by Pip’s singular talents.

Paranoid Pip and family are beset by evil-doers, creeps, thugs and drugs.

As told by mom, the story of Pip will take you on a journey through the ever-fascinating world of artists, writers, louts and lovers in the still-vital pub culture of beloved Greenwich Village, New York City.

 
What they’re saying about it:
 
Larissa Killough, Amazon:
 
“Rip-roariously funny, fabulously witty and wickedly entertaining. A great, quick read that will have you in stitches, wishing for more. Oh, to have lived in the Greenwich Village during that time, even better to have lived with the great cast of characters – Mom, Big G, Maria, Paulie, and of course, the notorious PIP!!! A must read for all (except maybe the faint-hearted)!!!!”
 
Vince Clarke, Amazon:
 
“For those of you who love books about dogs (and there seem to be many out there), I can’t recommend Paranoid Pip highly enough. I picked it up one day, attracted by the hilarious cover, and was delighted to find that the story inside is just as funny. It deals with an artistic family living in the West Village (NYC) and all the things that happen to them when they are conned into taking a Wire Haired Terrier into their home. So many things happen (I don’t want to spoil the plot), and each new story is funnier and more exciting than the last.

A page-turning laugh aminute. You won’t be able to put it down. I couldn’t; I read it in two sittings! I’m sure you will too!”
