You Should Get a Cat by Tom Soter

See why KIRKUS REVIEWS called this new collection by Tom Soter (OVERHEARD ON A BUS, DRIVING ME CRAZY) "a compilation that's as diverse and surprising as life on a New York City block...his topics range across his many interests, including the cats that he's owned over the years, his encounters with cyclists on the streets of New York City, his love life, and his pop-culture obsessions, such as the 1960s television program Combat! The pieces differ not only in content, but in form and structure as well. There are witty one-pagers about life in the big city; a lengthier piece about some of the more memorable students in Soter's improvisational comedy classes; an interview-based article about co-op doormen; a memorial poem for Soter's mother; and even a sci-fi story...readers will delight in the surprise of stumbling from a rumination on childhood birthdays to an unpublished, intimate interview with the legendary comedian John Cleese (of Monty Python fame) within a few pages..." The book features autobiographical essays and much more: a sit-down with the first Superman KIRK ALYN and a look at his successors GEORGE REEVES and CHRISTOPHER REEVE; a visit with HILLARY ZWICKY, a woman who interviews dogs; and musings by Soter as an improv teacher, cat owner, and unabashed CHARLIE CHAN fan. Plus: SOTER PARTIES, CHIMNEY SWEEPS, LONDON CABS, A GREEK GROWS IN BROOKLYN, CLINT EASTWOOD AS JESUS, and a WEEKEND WIFE! "Nearly everyone will find something of interest in this volume!" (KIRKUS)
