Two centuries of literary homages to the fascinating feline: stories by writers of every stripe from P.G. Wodehouse to Doris Lessing, from Damon Runyon to Steven Millhauser. The essential unkwableness of cats has inspired many flights of fancy: Italo Calvi s secret city of cats in The Garden of Stubborn Cats, the disappearing feline in Ursula K. Le Guin s mind-twisting Schrodinger s Cat, the cartoon rodent and his cartoon nemesis in Steven Millhauser s Cat n Mouse. Cats flaunt their superiority in Angela Carter s bawdy retelling of Puss-in-Boots and in Stephen Vincent Benet s The King of the Cats, in which two impossibly suave foreigners are revealed as even more exotic than they pretend to be. In The Islands by Alice Adams and I See You, Bianca by Maeve Brennan we see how much cats can mean to their humans. And the inimitable Saki lets us hear what cats really think of us in Tobermory, his tale of a tactless talking animal. In these and other stories, this delightful book offers cat lovers a many- faceted tribute to the beguilingly mysterious objects of their affection.
