Writers and Their Cats

Writers and Their Cats

"A wonderful (not to say novel) idea for a book. As a cat lover myself, I'm pleased to see how many authors favor my own two favorite cat types, Siamese and the black shorthair 'Halloween' cats. Frankly, all of Charles Bukowski's (p. 31) best poems are about cats, and the page and photo on Ursula K. Le Guin (p. 99) is in itself worth the whole book."

Mark Twain, Alice Walker, Haruki Murakami, Ursula K. Le Guin—this volume celebrates 45 famous authors who have shared their homes and hearts with furry feline friends. The photographs and stories in Writers and Their Cats capture the special bond between wordsmith and mouser. From the six-toed kitties who still inhabit the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum in Florida to the mewling muses of mystery writer Lilian Jackson Braun, cats are clearly, in the words of Gloria Steinem, "a writer's most logical and agreeable companion."
