Dean Spanley: The Novel
The classic humorous novel about an alcohol-loving clergyman who thinks he is the reincarnation of a dog. Complete with the award-winning film screenplay that expands upon the tale.
Dean Spanley is affable, conventional and prudent - the very archetype of a bland churchman. Only his keen interest in the transmigration of souls and his obsession with dogs betray any shadow of eccentricity.
But then, richly primed with a few glasses of Imperial Tokay, he begins to speak vividly of the joys of rabbiting, of rolling in fresh dung and of baying at the moon. Are these canine memories a drunken fancy? Or can it be that Dean Spanley must once have been a dog?
This special edition includes Lord Dunsany's witty and inventive novel, My Talks With Dean Spanley, together with Alan Sharp's award-winning screenplay for the film starring Peter O'Toole and Sam Neill, which faithfully adapts and expands upon the events in the story.
