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

The Big New Yorker Book of Cats - The New Yorker Magazine, Anthony Lane, 村上春樹, Calvin Trillin & M.F.K. Fisher Reviews

  • Not the cat stories I wanted to read

    I was eager to devour stories about cats by wonderful writers. But one after another, they depicted cats being mistreated or killed in a somewhat detached tone. Now, I ask you, editor of “The Big New Yorker Book Of Cats,” what makes yu think a cat lover would want to read about cats beaten and run over, drowned, tied up or turned into “steak?” These stories, even though written in eloquent prose, weren’t written by those who love cats and, fooled by the name, remain angered at teh nonchalance of cruelty paraded in front of them in this book. The illustrations are beautiful, but I would love to get a refund. I won’t finish this “collection.” There are enough stories of abuse and suffering in my inbox from animal rescue societies. At least they tell their stories with empathy for cats.
