Cheeky Dogs: To Lake Nash and Back (hard cover)

$30.00

In this exuberant illustrated memoir, action-packed images and poetic words trace Dion Beasley's fascination with cheeky dogs and his unconventional journey into the world of contemporary art.

Every morning

Is it time yet?

Nearly Joie says.

Out of the freezer comes the meat.

Bones and sausages and chicken necks.

Butcher knife on the bricks, me chopping up.

Be careful! Or you'll cut your finger off.

We can't have that Joie says.

Meet deaf artist, Dion Beasley, and the people he calls family. Dodging road trains by day and giant blue monsters at night, Dion weaves his way through life on an electric scooter, collecting rocks and dogs to make art. In his dreams he sees animals from overseas and his mother's country, Lake Nash, but every morning, without fail, he puts on his favourite socks and gets ready to feed the dogs. Is it time yet?
