The Big New Yorker Book of Cats

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - BOOKS -

Fore­word by An­thony Lane Ran­dom House, 329 pages, $46 THE New Yorker im­pri­matur should alert you that this cat-fo­cused com­pen­dium is a cut above cute YouTube videos. With fic­tion and non­fic­tion con­tri­bu­tions from such au­gust names as John Updike, Su­san Or­lean, James Thurber, Mar­garet At­wood and Roald Dahl, as well as poetry, car­toons andd a sur­pris­ing num­ber of colour New Yorker cov­ers fea­tur­ing fe­lines, there’s some­thing for ev­ery taste (though it’s a tad text-heavy for a cof­feetable book; those YouTube video fans among us might say “MOAR cat pix”). A lovely gift for the literary fe­line fancier on your list — even Grumpy Cat would agree.
