We Cannot Escape the Responsibility of Tomorrow by Evading It Today. –Abraham Lincoln books, movies, music & more...


In the not-too-distant future, the charac- ters in Arin Greenwood’s second novel, Your Robot Dog Will Die, inhabit a world where all dogs have been eutha- nized. An experiment gone awry caused the species to stop wagging their tails. Hysteria ensued, fol- lowed by the order of mass euthanasia. That is, except for


a small number of


dogs relegated to a sanctuary in Florida called Dog Island. Without spoiling the plot (oh how I’d love to; it’s so delicious), humans now


have the opportunity to share their lives with a new breed of dog - robots - as pets, replaced every year. Nevertheless, having one robot dog replaced by anoth- er, every year, only causes Nano, the book’s protagonist, heartbreak, as she falls in love with each new dog. Once the plot is revealed there is no


putting down this fun quirky read. Nano’s otherwise seemingly idyllic life on Dog Island is about to be upended. She is only seventeen. As Nano begins to ask questions, she can no longer let things just be, especially when she discovers a living puppy who wags its tail. Puppies are not allowed in this new world order, and this one will be euthanized, when discovered. But, saving the puppy will put Nano’s family and friends in danger. As another American novelist, Alice


Hoffman, said, “Once you know some things, you can’t un-know them. It’s a burden that can never be given away.”


You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. –John Lennon


From the mind of Wes Anderson comes a futuristic story set in a dystopian Japan. Isle of Dogs is Anderson’s second stop-motion animation film, following the Academy Award- winning-nominated Fantastic Mr. Fox in 2009. Isle of Dogs tells the story


of Atari Kobayashi, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. “Canine saturation has reached epidemic proportions” according to the movie’s trailer. As a result, the government has begun moving dogs to their own island, leaving them to scrounge for garbage. Atari wants to be reunited with his dog, Scout, and flies to the island to embark on a dangerous journey. With the assistance of a pack of newly-found canine friends, Atari begins his search, which will decide the fate and future of the territory. Building upon their successful collaboration on


The Grand Budapest Hotel — Anderson, Scott Rudin, Steven Rales and Jeremy Dawson return as producers, while Fox Searchlight Pictures will distribute the film in partnership with Indian Paintbrush.


54 THE NEW BARKER “Wes Anderson is one of the most talented filmmakers


of his, or any other, generation,” said Fox Searchlight Pictures Presidents Nancy Utley and Steve Gilula. “His ability to write smart and unconventional screenplays and then translate them into unique experiences on screen makes him not only a unique voice in film, but one who can truly bridge the gap between independent films and cross-over hits.” Isle of Dogs brings back


some of Anderson’s favorite actors to work with, including Edward Norton and Bill Murray. The rest of the voice cast is none too shabby either, including the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Greta Gerwig, Frances McDormand, Ken Watanabe, Harvey Keitel, Bryan Cranston, Jeff Goldblum, Liev Schreiber, F. Murray


Abraham and Yoko Ono, to name just a few. The film is scheduled to be released in March 2018.
