THE DOG (FREE DELIVERY)
Distraught by a breakup with his long-term girlfriend, our unnamed hero leaves New York to take an unusual job in a strange desert metropolis. In Dubai at the height of its self-invention as a futuristic Shangri-la, he struggles with his new position as the family officer of the capricious and very rich Batros family. And he struggles, even more helplessly, with the doghouse, a seemingly inescapable condition of culpability in which he feels himself constantly trapped. . . even if he's just going to the bathroom, or reading e-mail, or scuba diving.
