Publisher's Summary

Bloomsbury presents Songdogs by Colum McCann, read by Dion Graham.

The debut novel from National Book Award winner and Booker nominee Colum McCann.

Colum McCann's first novel goes back to the years before the Spanish Civil War, following the adventures of a peripatetic Irish photographer from the war-strewn shores of Europe to the exotic plains of Mexico.

The story is told in the words of the photographer's only son, a wanderer himself, who uses his father's unreliable memories and the fading remnants of his art to piece together his family history and explain the mystery surrounding his mother—a Mexican beauty brought back by his father to Ireland.
