When a small, gray (and impeccably handsome) kitten with folded ears entered Peter Gethers's life, he became a reformed cat-hater overnight. But little did he know the effect this new pal, soon-to-be named Norton, would have on his future: celebrity encounters, transatlantic, jet-setting excursions, and lessons about love and commitment that extended way beyond the usual relationship between a man and his feline.
The Norton Trilogy is the complete chronicles of Norton, the perfect Scottish Fold who won the hearts of hundreds of thousands through the endearing tales of his adventures with his not-so-perfect human in the three bestselling titles, The Cat Who Went to Paris, A Cat Abroad, and The Cat Who'll Live Forever. Bound together in one complete volume for the first time, these books let readers revel in Norton--his loveable nature, rebellious streak, and very uncatlike demeanor--and follow his often hilarious escapades across two continents.
From outshining Sir Anthony Hopkins at a movie premiere in the Hamptons and being feted with a Pounce pizza at Spago by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck, to making canine friends at the dog run in Washington Square Park and charming the hotel staff at the ritzy Tremoille Hotel in Paris, Norton's uncanny genius and unique relationship with the author touch everyone they meet.
Traveling together through France, Italy, Holland and Spain, and culminating in their last cross-country trip in America, we learn about Norton's deeply moving last days and the lessons they taught his devoted human about death and grief and how to appreciate the joyful times we have here on earth.
The Norton Trilogy is more than a story about a cat--it is a tribute to true friendship and the extraordinary bond between people and their pets.
Peter Gethers, in addition to being the chronicler of his wonderful Scottish Fold cat Norton, is a novelist, screenwriter, and book publisher. He is the author of two novels, The Dandy and Getting Blue. Under the pseudonym Russell Andrews, he is the author of four internationally bestselling thrillers: Gideon, Icarus, Aphrodite and Midas.
