From medieval manuscript to Japanese prints, from Steinlen's splendid drawings to 17th century prints, the author introduces the reader to the hundreds of books and manuscripts (belonging to the Bibliotheque Nationale de France in Paris) in which the lovely feline is represented. The cat has been the main character of many tales, but also the inhabitant of the most diverse books: from natural histories to household manuals, from medieval prayer books to famous writers' manuscripts. A wonderful selection for all who love cats and books!"

First in a new series! Nestled in the barrier islands of Florida’s Gulf Coast, Fort Myers Beach is home to Mary “Sassy” Cabot and Bridget Mayfield—owners of the bookstore café, Read ’Em and Eat. But when they’re not dishing about books or serving up scones, Sassy and Bridgy are keeping tabs on hard-boiled murder. Read ’Em and Eat is known for its delicious breakfast and lunch treats, along with quite a colorful clientele. If it’s not Rowena Gustavson loudly debating the merits of the current book club selection, it’s Miss Augusta Maddox lecturing tourists on rumors of sunken treasure among the islands. It’s no wonder Sassy’s favorite is Delia Batson, a regular at the Emily Dickinson table. Augusta’s cousin and best friend Delia is painfully shy—which makes the news of her murder all the more shocking. No one is more distraught than Augusta, and Sassy wants to help any way she can. But Augusta doesn’t have time for sympathy. She wants Delia’s killer found—and she’s not taking no for an answer. Now Sassy is on the case, and she’d better act fast before there’s any more trouble in paradise. Includes a buttermilk pie recipe!

This book celebrates the Gechts' gift of over thirty works to The Art Institute of Chicago, joining what has long been one of the most distinguished public collections of late nineteenth- and twentieth-century graphic arts in America. Showcasing the couple's bequest, Graphic Modernism is augmented by one hundred other examples from the family's important holdings. The Art Institute's staff worked closely with the Gechts in making selections for the museum that will fill lacunae and add strength to strength. In an informative introduction, Art Institute curator Suzanne Folds McCullagh relates the collection to the context in which it was formed. Each of the over 130 works included here is reproduced in full color, and is accompanied by an informative and accessible entry prepared by Art Institute staff and the Gechts' curator, Mark Krisco.

Throughout the world, people spend much of their time with animal companions of various kinds, frequently with cats and dogs. What meanings do we make of these relationships? In the ecocritical collection Reading cats and Dogs, a diverse array of scholars considers the philosophy, literature, and film devoted to human relationships with companion species. In addition to illuminating famous animal stories by Beatrix Potter, Jack London, Italo Svevo, and Michael Ondaatje, readers are introduced to the dog poems of Shuntarō Tanikawa, a Turkish documentary on stray cats as neighborhood companions, and the representation of diverse animal companions in Cameroonian novels. Focusing on “Stray and Feral Companions,” “The Usefulness of Companion Animals,” and “Problematizing Companion Animals,” Reading Cats and Dogs aims both to confirm and topple readers’ assumptions about the fellow travelers with whom we share our lives, our streets and fields, and our planet. Fifteen contributors from various countries reveal the aesthetic, ethical, and psychological complexities of our multispecies relationships, demonstrating the richness of ecocritical animal studies.

The cat -- a goddess, an enigma, a playmate and a friend. Dorothy M. Stuart approaches her subject along four main roads: archaeology, history, legend and literature. The Ancient Egyptian Mau is here; the enchanted cats of Irish legend; the Gib of Gammer Gurton s Needle. Hodge and Selima, Jeffry and Dinah refused to be left out; but there are less familiar examples, too: the cat which voluntarily shared the Earl of Southampton s captivity in the Tower; the kitten in whose defence John Keats had a stand up fight with a brutal butcher-boy of Hampstead; the delinquent who at dead of night gnawed the strings of her master s lute. Graymalkin, the witches familiar, comes into the picture; and we catch fascinating glimpses of two furry sympathizers licking the tears from Florence Nightingale s cheeks, and of Cardinal Richelieu solemnly adding something on behalf of a cat and her kittens to the modest pension assigned by His Eminence to Mademoiselle Marie de Gournay, Montaigne s polished female friend. Dorothy M. Stuart is better known for her elegant and polished biographies, but in this short book we see a lighter side of her pen in an appreciation of feline company.

Burroughs and Andy Warhol both wrote books inspired by their feline friends.

Here is a collection of happy, nourishing hero-cat and loving human family historical, adventure, and time-travel stories and novels for all holidays in spite of the wars. It's Christmas. It's Hannukah. It's Ramadan. It's all holidays, and time for an adventure. For example, take the Silk Road stories: "For where there's worship, there's more trade," Baghatur added. The next morning was another hot day in July, and Bihar went along the road between the fields of wheat. Women were starting to work the fields again. The children carried sheaves on their heads. Everything had to be done by hand. In Nablus, life went with no work. The food was gone, and not enough healers yet. So Bihar was welcome to mix his herbs and alchemy because they made miracles. He passed an old farmer wearing a large Greek cross. "Keev Halik?" In Arabic Bihar asked the man how he was. "Forget me," the farmer waved back. "Your crops are still rotting?" Bihar asked as he walked toward Jerusalem. "I had to sell my farm cheap." The farmer laughed tensely. "So did my forefathers in Sarkel," Bihar answered, with a pointed finger. "Are you a Cherkessk Mountaineer?" "What difference would it make to you from where I come? Does the left side of the Sea mean more to you than the right side of it? There's enough fish at both ends to feed the world." "Where are you going?" The farmer shielded his eyes from the sun with his hands. "I'm going to Jerusalem."

Josephine Fish is a pensive, intelligent calico and the unlikely heroine of the book that bears her name. When we first meet Josephine we realize she’s no ordinary housecat: She alone in the animal kingdom, or those outside of the human race, is able to communicate through the written word, and Miss Josephine has worked diligently to perfect her skills on her “female human’s” computer. When the local wildlife discover Josephine’s unusual talent, she’s ensnared into the nitty-gritty of political activism. Crafty use of the ancient art of blackmail catches the political world unaware when Josephine votes her conscience and follows the commands of the brusque but efficient Mr. Blue Jay. Soon, politicians across America begin to buckle under the pressure, brought by the mysterious E-mails pouring out of the Fish’s peaceful, suburban household, to do right by the animal world – or else. The author of this well-paced mystery has found the perfect blend of suspense and humor that force us book-lovers to miss our beauty sleep to find out whodunit. Thank you to Patricia Fish for sharing Josephine with the rest of us.
