I read this book because Sue Coe is included in the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund's "Fourteen Banned and Challenged Comics by Women. I couldn't find a copy of a book that included this work, so I am reading som My fifth book for this year.

In Pit's Letter, a hapless canine describes her desolate life to her only surviving sister.

Coe's book is political, and she clearly hopes it will make readers think twice about what they put into their mouths, but she does not preach and is unafraid to confront her own complicity: "Every dollar I get drips with blood too," she writes

Coe's book is political, and she clearly hopes it will make readers think twice about what they put into their mouths, but she does not preach and is unafraid to confront her own complicity: "Every dollar I get drips with blood too," she writes. Her empathetic rendering of the workers she encounters is reminiscent of Studs Terkel at his best, and the parallels she draws between society's treatment of meat animals and its working classes are disturbing and convincing.

In Pit's Letter, a hapless canine describes her desolate life to her only surviving sister. She recounts her puppyhood and upbringing in her human family, her heartless banishment, and finally her suffering and death at the hands of the experimenting scientists at Eden Biotechnology.

Like a latter-day Goya, Sue Coe is driven to create moral works, from stark renditions of slaughterhouse brutality to accounts of abused domestic animals and laboratory testing. In Pit's Letter, a hapless canine describes her desolate life to her only surviving sister. She recounts her puppyhood and upbringing in her human family, her heartless banishment, and finally her suffering and death at the hands of the experimenting scientists at Eden Biotechnology. Ironically, her former master winds up in the same situation: an accidental scratching infects him with a pathogen - and man and beast share the same fate.

The book is well written, it made me cry. I know the sad reality of the dog fighting underworld since I work at a prosecutor's office. I would definitely recommend this book.

EVERYONE WHO OWENS OR DOES NOT OWN A DOG SHOULD READ THIS BOOK.
VERY SMALL BOOK FAST READ. IT WILL GET YOUR HEART.
FANTASTIC READ.

Sue Coe has no equal but is beloved by animal rights radicals for her jaundiced, human-hating view of life on earth. To her all humans are evil and savage, even the good people are tainted. All animals are innocent victims tortured by humanity. What's scary is not what you see in Sue Coe's overheated imagery, but the fact that many young people are captivated by her gothic vision and take it for gospel truth. The stereotypical caricatures of dog fighters are a joke. We all know that every animal abuser goes on to hurt people, too. Right. Whatever. Sue Coe really despises people, and that's sad. She invokes just about every animal rights cause in this small book, including a feverish slam at deer hunting, which seemed totally gratuitous and unwarranted in a book supposedly focussing on pit bulls. I got this book from Amazon because I own a pit bull. I knew better than to expect a fair and balanced picture from Sue Coe, though.

I have read some reviews on this site, and have to say that many are missing the point of this work.The work was based on Hogarth's Four Stages of Cruelty. The topics that are covered are not just about pit bulls or their reputation, or about human to animal cruelty. While those are the the main reasons many buy this book, pay attention to the other messages that are being sent here. This book discusses vivisection, spousal abuse, gang rape, and the downfall of a human being. It shows the results of an abusive childhood on one particular boy, who in turn learned that torturing the weak was acceptable. His father (an abusive and angry person) separates him from his dog because the dog couldn't prove herself in the hunting sport, and leaves her behind. The boy has now lost his only source of comfort and morals, and grows up with out them. He goes on to rape a mentally disabled girl "because she'll never tell" and then become a scientist who's colleagues tortures the very animal that he found his only solace in as a child. The irony is in the fact that he contracts a deadly virus from an animal that he tortures and dies in very much the same fashion as his beloved dog. There are many places online where you can research this artists work. It's not just about the Pit bull, or animal cruelty, or any one subject at all. It covers a plethera of difficult topics that are meant to invoke emotions and make people think. I am a proud owner of two pit bulls and I am glad that I checked out this book, as it covers so much more than I ever expected.

I am SO glad I came across this book in the library... the art is luscious and fascinating, and the simple storyline is TOTALLY engrossing.... This book grabbed me like no other, and pulled me into this fable of honor, hope, tragedy, and dreams. By the end, I was bawling my eyes out. This book will leave its mark on you... be prepared!

Sue Coe has no competition. One of the most brilliant artists of our time has given us a book that will make you weep--and think. This is the story of one dog's life, told through a series of letters and illustrations. Pages of detailed, chilling drawings take us through various subcultures that Pit Bulls have come to know best. The reader travels in Pit's mind through brutal streets where rape and dog fighting go hand in hand. Pit ends up in a Dickensian shelter, which eventually leads to a laboratory where the unimaginable is routine. Don't be scared--following Pit's journey is worth the agony. This little book is like a stick of dynamite. You will never look at another Pit Bull again without a tug of compassion. I just kept reading it over and over.

Touching, brilliant and chilling, this book affected me down to the depths of my soul. A must read for all animal lovers. Thought provoking and disturbing, for the more sensitive reader, but contacts the heart, nevertheless. Arlene Millman, author of BOOMERANG - A MIRACLE TRILOGY (The tale of a remarkable Boston Terrier).
This book was not just a story about the pit bulls "misconception" but of human "misconception". I have always believed that man was put on earth to take care of animals, not act like one. This book explores just how far humans will go to attain dominance and superiority over anyone or anything they deem "weaker"...I loved the book and plan to give it as gifts to all I feel "know what empathy might be".
