Writers and dogs, they go together like rice and beans, soap and water, frick and frack…. Well, you get the idea. Writing can be a lonely business, and the diversions of my faithful canine companion have helped me untangle many a mixed metaphor, not to mention straighten out dangling participles.

Jill Krementz, photographer and author (and widow of Kurt Vonnegut), has clicked her fair share of famous writers and their pooches. Take a peek here to see some of the literary pairings.

    Fascinating photos. I wish I had a dog and a place to walk with him like Bill Styron had. Also lust for Amy Hemple’s desk.

    I only have an old lust for Amy Hemple.
