“The city of cats and the city of men exist one inside the other, but they are not the same city.”
Cat Stories, ed. Diana Secker Tesdell (Everyman Pocket Classics)
Surprisingly well-balanced collection of, well, stories about cats. Each one is different: there are sad stories, cheerful stories, horror stories, experimental stories, fairy tales, fables, existential mutterings, pastiche and parody. Every kind of story, so long as it is cat. Such fun. Favourite story: Alice Adams’ “The Islands”.
