In Search of the Holy Mother of Jobs

Carolyn See
If Charles Lamb was a woman and a Texan, and wrote about drugs, sex, rock ‘n roll, reptiles and unemployment, he’d be Pat Littledog! This fearless being gives new and wonderful meaning to the phrase, ‘Familiar Essay’.
The Texas Observer
"In her most recent book (In Search of The Holy Mother of Jobs), Pat Littledog sets out to write an economic theory of women's work. Instead, she walks her reader barefoot across the fragments of theory into a life that fits no discernable discipline, reaching out to anyone who has ever been broke, irresolute, giddy, expansive, confident, demoralized and badly in need of a job.

LittleDog confronts labor with poetry, and a symbolism peculiar to Texas. Roaches flutter through the pages, feeding on the rising waters of a rich fantasy life that mingles sex and death with the work that keeps body and soul together."
Austin Statesman
"LittleDog's freshness always lends vigor to her storytelling."
