One Dean Koontz; Three New Books

USA Today interviews Dean Koontz, who talks about his abusive childhood, saying that is featured in  his forthcoming memoir, A Big Little Life.

Koontz’s childhood is just part of A Big Little Life, whose subtitle is A Memoir of a Joyful Dog. It’s mainly about the relationship he had with his late beloved golden retriever, Trixie, who died in 2007 and whom he credits with changing his life.
