Dissing the Dog

Is it my fault that my dog isn’t faultless?

Having a writer in the family is a curse, said Karl Ove Knausgård, who’s most famous, Wikipedia tells me, for a six-volume (enough already) autobiography called “My Struggle.” I’m the writer in this family, and I hereby apologize to the accursed. Knausgård is right, but truth must be told.
