Writers And Their Cats


Every great writer needs a mews. Mark Twain, Alice Walker, Haruki Murakami, Ursula K. Le Guin—this volume celebrates many famous authors who have shared their homes and hearts with furry feline friends. 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." Writers and Their Cats features photographs and stories from 45 famous authors that capture the special bond between wordsmith and mouser. Hardcover; 112 pages.
