Pocket Dog is a smart, upmarket rom-com about Ollie Allyinphree, a hapless and perpetually single (if charmingly nerdy) research librarian in Boston. When Ollie comes into a sizeable fortune, he begins to receive marriage proposals from women all over the world. One relationship after another falls through until, with the help of a long-lost twin brother and a mysterious tiny rescue dog, Ollie learns how to overcome his passivity and take the risks that lead him to find and name what he truly wants.
Pocket Dog explores themes of taking risks in relationships and decision-making, the limits of knowledge and logic, and the meaning of love.
