Praise for The Big New Yorker Book of Cats
nbsp;
"The Book of Cats comes a year after The Big New Yorker Book of Dogs --a publishing slight that, though it stings, I'll forgive, as the latest anthology was worth the wait. . . . Two standout articles feature real-life obsessives of ages past who reveal today's Caturnet devotees--with their GIFs and Tumblrs and hastily aggregated listicles--for what they truly are: amateurs. . . . Eat your heart out, Cute Overload." -- The New York Times Book Review
nbsp;
"A beautiful hardcover." --Jenny McCarthy, People
nbsp;
"This irresistible anthology of articles, poems, essays, fiction, cartoons, and covers pulled from the New Yorker is a veritable treasure trove for cat lovers. Just dive right in; with stories from the likes of John Updike, Maeve Brennan, Roald Dalhl, and Haruki Murakami interwoven with hilariously wry cartoons, one can't help but be enthralled. A must-have." -- Modern Cat
nbsp;
"A shiny, well-fed tome . . . The anthology embodies the cat's defining characteristic: its cluster of opposites, rolled together into a giant hairball of cultural attitudes--something, perhaps, at once uncomfortably and assuringly reflective of our own chronically conflicted selves." -- Brain Pickings
nbsp;
"This gorgeous book has earned a permanent spot on my coffee table. It is an absolute joy to read and browse through, and I know it will bring me hours and hours of pleasure for years to come. And it makes a purr-fect gift for the special cat lovers in your life." -- The Conscious Cat
nbsp;
"[A] sumptuous volume." -- The Dallas Morning News
nbsp;
"One need not own cats (or do cats own their owners?) or even be a pet lover to savor this feline-focused offering." -- The Sacramento Bee
nbsp;
"[A] fun collection of short stories, articles, humor, poems, and charming color covers from the magazine's archives . . . [a] high-quality, attractive work." -- Library Journal
nbsp;
"Covers, cartoons, authors of pieces both longer and shorter, reflect current views of the feline subject in all its glory. . . . The quality, humor and variety make for another successful New Yorker collection." -- Kirkus Reviews
nbsp;
"An eminently giftable anthology." -- Publishers Weekly
