As a longtime newspaperman, John Grogan never dreamed that his humble, lovable dog Marley would launch him to the top of the New York Times bestseller list, help him create a line of beloved children's picture books, inspire an entire publishing wave of dog books and more. But this former Philadelphia Inquirer columnist's bestselling book Marley & Me, a memoir of his life with "the world's worst dog," a lovable, incorrigible golden retriever, spent 76 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, including 23 at #1. Marley & Me went on to inspire the smash-hit film. John's adventures with Marley have also been adapted into a series of children's picture books, including Bad Dog, Marley!, A Very Marley Christmas, Marley Goes to School, and Marley and the Kittens. John followed up Marley & Me with another bestselling book, The Longest Trip Home, a memoir focusing on his childhood, family and faith. Among the many dog books available, John Grogan’s Marley & Me is still top dog.
