    DescriptionLook what "The New Yorker" dragged in! It's the purr-fect gathering of talent celebrating our feline companions. This bountiful collection, beautifully illustrated in full color, features articles, fiction, humor, poems, cartoons, cover art, drafts, and drawings from the magazine's archives. Among the contributors are Margaret Atwood, T. Coraghessan Boyle, Roald Dahl, Wolcott Gibbs, Robert Graves, Emily Hahn, Ted Hughes, Jamaica Kincaid, Steven Millhauser, Haruki Murakami, Amy Ozols, Robert Pinsky, Jean Rhys, James Thurber, John Updike, Sylvia Townsend Warner, and E. B. White. Including a Foreword by Anthony Lane, this gorgeous keepsake will be a treasured gift for all cat lovers. 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"
