I am Bill Gates’ Dog

gates-dog2Laughter that bites

We once knew Bill Gates as a plundering businessman who became the richest guy alive. Today he’s a noisy philanthropist.

Let’s pretend that, inbetween those two identities, billionaire Bill Gates runs a secret campaign to buff up his public image. Then let’s pretend that some invading canines interrupt his plot to manipulate public opinion.

It’s a mess. Gates schemes above. The dogs battle below. These canines have ambitions too, you see. Each yearns to become Bill Gates’ Dog, so each slyly maneuvers to undercut his kennel-mates and win the prize. Only one noble pooch deserves it. But he’s just a mutt. His rivals are highfalutin aristocrats who slap down the no-status mongrel.

But remember, Bill Gates rules the kennel. Surprises arise when his whims distort the dreams and schemes of every creature beneath him.

The novel I Am Bill Gates’ Dog is rollicking fiction that entertains and amuses while it stabs at cunning ambition. Concise and kinetic, the book swivels with plot twists and sudden revelations as it dashes to a boisterous climax. The novel enlightens you with its satire, because it grabs you as a comical, adventurous tale.
