Kipling’s Cat tells the true story of Jeffries Wyman: Boston Brahmin, scion of Harvard, brilliant scientist, accomplished artist and grieving widower who left his children behind in pursuit of science, knowledge, and discovery of self. His daughter and “keeper of the flame,” Anne Cabot Wyman, takes us on his global pilgrimages from the inner sanctum of Boston’s elite to the far reaches of the mountains of Japan; from life alongside the Eskimos of Alaska to the embassies and back streets of Paris, Cairo and Rome.

A complex, charismatic man, discoverer of “allostery” and pioneer of blood research, Jeffries Wyman is portrayed in a most unusual way by the daughter he left in Massachusetts, to be raised and educated by relatives, elite boarding schools and her own wits. It is a story compelling, sad, funny, endearing and outrageous, from the eyes of Anne, writer and artist in her own right, now 80, willing to tell all.
