Francesco Marciuliano’s new book, I Could Chew on This and Other Poems by Dogs, captures the thoughts and emotional life of man’s best friend. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes poignant, Francesco’s new book is partly the result of his lifelong fascination with Charles Shultz’ Peanuts comic strip, which Francesco points out, was sometimes sad. Besides studying other writers, Francesco draws inspiration from walking–a lot! Formerly shy and with an interesting cast of real-life relatives, Francesco has funny, thoughtful, interesting things to say about the creative process and also about people as well as cats and dogs. He’ll be my guest on The Studio with Cheryl on kruufm.com Monday, Sept. 2 at 1 PM.
