      In this dangerous and sharp-eyed look at men and women and the world we live in rverything is changing: women are turning into animals, and animals are turning into women. Pooch, a golden setter is turning into a beautiful woman -- although she still has some of her canine traits: she just canít shuck that loyalty thing -- and her former owner is turning into a fierce snapping turtle. When the turtle takes a bite at her baby, Pooch is forced to make a choice: she takes the baby and runs. Meanwhile there is a dangerous wolverine on the loose, men are desperately trying to figure out whatís going on, and Pooch discovers what she really wants; to sing Carmen. Carmen Dog is intelligent, funny, and beautiful, and for years has been an underground classic. It inspired writers Pat Murphy and Karen Joy Fowler to create the James Tiptree Jr. Memorial Award and we are very pleased to publish it as the debut title in our new Peapod Press reprint line.
