by Alejandro Jodorowsky
Translated from the Spanish by Alfred MacAdam
“Deeply psychological and mysterious, the book will stimulate the imagination of the reader's mind to the extreme.”
“In his latest novel, Jodorowsky builds on his multi-decade long assault of the public imagination…. a fantastical and genre-defying parable of love and friendship…. At its core, Albina and the Dog-Men is a love story about two people committed to one another's survival and to discovering their potential. And, as with life, it is sometimes only through the weathering of a storm that our true capacities are made clear.”
