Praise for The Big New Yorker Book of Cats
“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
“A beautiful hardcover.”—Jenny McCarthy, People
“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
“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
“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
“[A] sumptuous volume.”The Dallas Morning News
“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
“[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
“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
“An eminently giftable anthology.”Publishers Weekly

There are so many stories just open it up and start anywhere you choose. It's a joy every time I pick this book up and read another story. There's stories to fill the heart with joy and some will fill your eyes with tears, there are lots of funny ones, some that make you laugh out loud, sweet ones, cute ones and some with crazy fantasy, the stories goes on and on. All are well written as they should be just look at the list of contributing authors along with the equivalent in contributing artists that include their sketches, cartoons, photographs, etc. This is a wonderful coffee table book and it would make a great gift for those that have a place in their heart and their home for a cat or two or three....!
