Black – The Story of a Dog by Alexandre Dumas

This is the first volume of Alexandre Dumas’s 1895 novel, “Black – The Story of a Dog”.

It is the masterfully-told story of Chevalier de la Graverie, an incompetent anti-hero, and his various life experiences. Humorous and exciting, “Black” is highly recommended for fans of Dumas’s work, and is well deserving of a place on any bookshelf. Chapters include such enigmatic topics as: ‘Man proposes and God disposes’, ‘The Chevalier finds both what he is seeking and what he is not seeking’, and ‘Mahouni’.

Alexandre Dumas (1802–1870) was a famous French writer. He is best remembered for his exciting romantic sagas, including “The Three Musketeers” and “The Count of Monte Cristo”. Despite making a great deal of money from his writing, Dumas was almost perpetually penniless thanks to his extravagant lifestyle. His novels have since been translated into nearly a hundred different languages, and have inspired over two hundred motion pictures.

Many vintage texts such as ‘Black – The Story of a Dog’ are becoming increasingly rare and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now, in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
